WALK with Refugees and Immigrants
Portland Parks for New Portlanders is partnering with Sunday Parkways to organize “Walk with Refugees & Immigrants” on Sunday, August 20th. The community, city and elected leaders will gather at East Portland Neighborhood Office and participate in a mile walk towards Knott Park alongside the refugee & immigrant community to show our support. In partnership with refugee and immigrant organizations, this event plans to recognize the unique experiences of new Portlanders of all ages by honoring seniors and providing school supplies for children. Come hear refugees & Immigrants share their stories, diverse music, food, and other activities to enjoy. We urge all our neighbors, local businesses, board members, neighborhood associations & non-profits to join us on this walk for a more compassionate, generous, and welcoming Portland!
