Launch of the Ashland Sunrise Project
February 12 @ 6:00 pmFree
This event will kick-off the launch of the Sunrise Project in Ashland.
The Sunrise Project aims to help former sundown towns reconcile their history of racial exclusion by creating new identities as that of “sunrise communities,” the opposite to sundown towns. After starting in Grants Pass, the Oregon Remembrance Project is now working with community members in Ashland to bring this vision of belonging for all to our community. Learn more about the project and how you can join us in rewriting the ending to the story of a sundown town.
Featured speakers include Taylor Stewart (Oregon Remembrance Project), Gabi Johnsen (Grants Pass Remembrance), & Anna Sloan (Southern Oregon Historical Society).
Ashland Sunrise Project is an Ashland Together Initiative in partnership with Oregon Remembrance Project. We thank the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for venue support for this event.
Please RSVP on the website.
