Dr. Agyeman

Dr. Julian Agyeman from Tufts University spoke to a large crowd of Portlanders at the Hollywood Theatre on December 15. Referencing his research on spatial justice and inter-culturalism, Agyeman told the audience, "If you ask the right questions, you'll get the right answers." Panelists Jonathan Oster from OPAL, Polo Catalani from the City's Office of Human Relations and the Urban League's Marcus Mundy shared the stage and answered questions from the audience about how to ensure more people of color can influence the civic decision-making process. Amalia Alarcon de Morris, director of the Office of Neighborhood Involvement moderated.
