The Portland NAACP chapter, under new dynamic leadership, has added a Black Liberation & Social Justice committee, which I chair.
Under the leadership of Sharon Gary-Smith, the chapter has scrapped the traditionally conservative approach to community service in favor of activist-led political committees.
Other focuses include Food Justice, Housing, Environmental Justice, Economic Development, and more. The chapter is always looking for motivated volunteers.
A Opened October 2021 in the old Merchant Hotel, the 1150+ square foot WOHM Creative Space currently serves as a hub in Old Town Portland connecting artists to resources in the community and beyond. A continually evolving meeting space with space for expanded multimedia capabilities, the WOHM Creative Space serves for both planning and artistic execution.
