The Vanport Mosaic invites you to join our "memory activism" effort to amplify, honor and preserve the history of Vanport City.

Please join us at Portland City Council on May 23th, and make history with us! 70 years after a flood wiped out Oregon's second largest city on May 30 1942, Mayor Wheeler will proclaim

** Vanport Day of Remembrance**

Let's pack City Hall to show that this history matters, and as a community pledge #IRememberVanport

This has been such a wonderful community effort, and a perfect prelude to the The Vanport Mosaic Festival 2018, May 25-28, 2018. Full program coming soon: https://www.vanportmosaic.org/festival-2018/
