YP C.U.L.T.: A People's History of Portland Walking Tour

Events | Young Professionals

 

Join the Young Professionals for "A People's History of Portland," a Know Your City walking tour that highlights the lesser known stories of Portland’s immigrants, social activists, and working class heroes.

Before Portland was known for Portlandia, bikes, and brews, the foundations of the city were built by immigrant laborers. This tour tells Portland’s story from the point of view of Chinese people, Japanese people, African American people, Jewish people, and the LGBTQ communities that are often left out of mainstream conversations about Portland.

The tour will be led by Cameron Whitten, a civic entrepreneur, citizen journalist, and political figure living in Portland. Whitten has run for political office, organized a 55 day hunger strike for housing justice, and has had visible leadership with prominent political movements such as Occupy Portland, Right 2 Dream Too, and Portland’s Resistance. Leaving behind an abusive childhood, Whitten arrived in Portland at the age of eighteen on October 6th, 2009, and for two years experienced homelessness. His experiences shape his steadfast voice as an advocate for housing justice.

Time: Tour begins at 6:30pm

Meeting Location: Voodoo Doughnuts22 SW 3rd Ave, Portland, OR 97204

Cost: $10 WAC Members; $15 Non-Members - Registration Required

C.U.L.T., A text-speak acronym for "C U Last Tuesday", is a monthly program put on by the Young Professionals of the World Affairs Council of Oregon. The theme and format of the event changes from month to month, but what doesn't vary is the promise to entertain, educate, and broaden your horizons. Invite your friends and we'll see you on the last Tuesday of each month!
