BIPOC in Portland
BIPOC—identifying newcomers in Portland are consistently unable to find a sense of community. This is compounded by the fact that they are busy with work, studies and do not have the time or the energy to find people and spaces that feel welcome and familiar. As a result, they are unable to feel accepted as a part of the larger Portland community.
