You’re invited to the release event on September 14th at 11 AM at the Mim’s Memorial House located at 330 High Street, Eugene. This event is to share the report with the media and community at large, raise awareness about the importance of reporting hate and bias incidents as they occur, provide a clear and unified message that hate and bigotry are not welcome in our community and invite community members to participate in organizations working towards building a more welcoming community .
We have been working to prepare for this event in partnership with League of Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Grupo Latino Acción Directa of Lane County (GLAD), Blacks in Government (BIG), Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC), NAACP Springfield Eugene, Asian and Pacific Islander Community Action Network (APICAT) and Showing Up for Racial Justice Springfield-Eugene (SURJ). Each of these organizations have signed onto a letter of support and plan to be present at the event.
