V.O.I.C.E. Project Meeting

From the Urban League of Portland:

Make Your VOICE Heard! Voice Our Importance through Community Engagement!

Our community has one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. We have poor health outcomes and our children face unfair discipline in schools that lead to high drop-out rates. What is being done to fix these issues?

Come learn more about how the Urban League of Portland is helping to build a better future for African Americans through the Portland Plan. We want to hear your ideas about how to build a better future for our community. Join us for an evening of sharing and engagement, Wednesday, February 16, 2011 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.

For more information please contact Inger at 503-280-2600 ext. 641 or imcdowell@ulpdx.org
