The 2017–18 Portland Think & Drink series has explored some of the systems that create and perpetuate racial and economic inequality in the United States—in criminal justice, property law, banking, and other areas—and how people are organizing to change those systems. In May, join us for a conversation Rinku Sen and Mary Li that will offer a national perspective on these issues.
Rinku Sen is one of the leading voices in the racial justice movement. She is a senior strategist for Race Forward, a national organization that builds awareness, solutions, and leadership for racial justice, and a contributing writer for the organization’s daily news site, Colorlines.
Mary Li is director of the Multnomah Idea Lab (MIL). Part of the Multnomah Department of County Human Services, MIL is charged with seeking policy and innovation within the human services and government sectors.
