Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) presents the Portlanders Stand with Refugees and Immigrants celebration from 6 to 9 p.m. March 16 at PP&R’s East Portland Community Center, 740 SE 106th Ave. All are welcome to the free, multicultural community gathering to celebrate people new to Portland – and to the United States - and to help them feel welcomed.
The free Portlanders Stand with Refugees & Immigrants event is a public celebration which includes multicultural music and dance performances. Enjoy food carts on site, serving throughout the event.
Portland Parks & Recreation, via the Parks for New Portlanders program, also hosts events such as the Portland World Cup Soccer Tournament, and New Portlanders Cultural Celebration and Family Day. These events are often many newcomers’ first experiences with their City government, and helps people new to Portland access Portland Parks & Recreation offerings and other City services.
Portland Parks & Recreation welcomes people from all races, religions, countries of origin, sexual orientations, genders and abilities.
The #WeStandTogether poster is available in English and 14 other languages.
