In these times of collective amnesia, remembering is an act of resistance. Join us for 6 days of memory activism opportunities, commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the Vanport Flood and the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act through screenings, live perfomances, tours, exhibits, and community engagement initiatives.
This multi-disciplinary event was awarded the Oregon Heritage Excellence Award 2017, the Spirit of Portland Award by City Commissioner Nick Fish, and the Columbia Slough Watershed Council’s Achievement Award.
Thanks to our advocacy effort, Gov. Kate Brown, Sen. Jackie Winters, House Speaker Tina Kotek, Portland Mayors Charles Hales and Ted Wheeler, have proclaimed a Vanport Day of Remembrance on the anniversary of the flood.
