More details found on the Tribal Relations facebook page. 

Updated Event Information - Due to Rain

In the likely event of all day rain we will move our programming to under the west side of the Hawthorne Bridge, just a few yards north of South Hawthorne Waterfront Park, 1403 S. Harbor Way, Portland, Oregon 97201 - located in Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Vendors will be under tents on the grass next to the bridge.

As a reminder, this event will involve discussions of difficult topics including violence and domestic and sexual abuse. Please be mindful of your needs and the needs of others. There will be a private tent staffed by community health workers for those that need to remove themselves from the event.
