Black Girl in Suburbia screening and discussion. Melissa Lowery directed this feature documentary that looks into the experiences of black girls growing up in predominately white communities. Black Girl in Suburbia intends to spark an open dialogue about race, identity and perspective among all people. http://www.blackgirlinsuburbia.com/

Commitment to the community is a large part of the Old Church Concert Halls mission. The We Can Listen series was launched in response to the changing political climate.  We act as a supportive base by providing stage, format, and promotion for local organizations as they design their own program to specifically address their concerns and causes in a way that is meaningful for them.

The intention and heart of the "We Can Listen series is to give Portlanders young and old multiple opportunities to hear a variety of speakers share their perspectives on todays most important social justice topics in a moderator-led conversational setting. The goals are to build community, educate, and share the positive impact that truly listening to diverse voices can have on us all. The Old Church offers speakers and listeners a trusted, respectful and inspirational gathering space, which we believe will result in important civil discourse and self-directed, self-sufficient modes of action.

The We Can Listen series will present speakers both well-regarded and new to public discourse on topics Portlanders have demonstrated are important to them: racism, the homelessness crisis, the environment and clean water, immigration and refugee issues, gender equality, disability and health care, hunger and food security, civic engagement strategies for adults and youth, and other compelling social justice issues.

A cultural intersection of storytelling, documentary, music and personal expression where all voices have the right to be heard, We Can Listen is a free monthly series, and is open to all. Every 2nd Tuesday of the month March-June and Sept-November at The Old Church.
