Rukaiyah Adams — native Portlander, community activist and chief investment officer at Meyer Memorial Trust — will speak about economic inequities and how to advance social change in our communities on Monday, January 28 in the Smith Memorial Student Union Ballroom at Portland State University.

Adams oversees investment activities at Meyer, the third largest community foundation in Oregon. Meyer recently went through a fundamental shift in its funding priorities driven by diversity, equity and inclusion priorities. Adams brings here skills in the finance world together with a deep commitment to all Portlanders, including communities of color.

She believes that our highest goal should be taking care of one another.

Celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and consider the link between his work and confronting economic injustice today.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., program starts at 6:30 p.m.

Reserve free tickets online, in person at the PSU Box Office, or by calling 503-725-3307.
