5441 SE Belmont St, Portland, Oregon 97215
Despite Oregon’s progressive and forward-thinking reputation, our history tells another story – indeed, many refer to Oregon as the South of the North, as we have historically embraced segregation, exclusion and displacement. Now, the disparities between communities of color and white people are extreme. Participants in this course will spend six weeks delving into our state’s history and our current realities. We will collectively build an understanding of how Oregon’s whiteness, historically and today, has functioned, an understanding that will help us move forward to develop a better future for us all.

Follow the registration link for more information on the topics covered during each week of the course.

Cost: $140. Proceeds of this class benefit the anti-oppression work of Oregon NOW, the state chapter of the National Organization for Women. A limited number of spaces are available for SNAP and WIC recipients to take the class at no charge; to request this option, send an email to Kristin Teigen at [email protected] Students who must miss a class are welcome to connect personally with the instructor to catch up.

Instructor: Kristin Teigen, MA, M.Ed. is an educator at Portland State University, where she teaches the history of communities of color in Oregon and issues of women’s homelessness. She’s also an anti-oppression activist, having worked in feminist, queer and people of color movements. She’s the current Secretary and is the Immediate Past President of Oregon NOW.
