In Portland, a long-time anti-racist is targeted for assassination in the downtown area. In Vancouver, BC, an anti-fascist activist’s house is bombed. In Los Angeles, the National Socialist Movement rallies and is opposed by hundreds. In the Northwest, the Aryan Nations faces resistance as it searches for a community to base its new compound.
- How are white supremacists organizing in Portland? On the West Coast generally? Should neo-Nazis just be ignored?
- How have communities responded to white supremacist activity, and what can we learn? Are there lessons from Portland’s own history?

We are hosting a panel discussion and community speak-out to address these and other questions. Our goal is to bring people together who are interested in this topic, provide broader context & resources, as well as to kick-start conversations about building responses.
Please bring your ideas and enthusiasm for the efforts ahead. We look forward to seeing you there!
