Brown Hope's next Reparations Power Hour will take place March 18th, at Doug Fir Lounge. For the non-Summer months we have decided to go on an every other month schedule, please stay tuned for our one-year anniversary May event.

Doug Fir Lounge is a 21+ venue, so minors will not be permitted on the property. We will also have volunteer offered childcare available in a nearby off-site location, if requested. Please email hello@brownhope.org if you'd like to request free, volunteer-provided childcare.

We created this FAQ page to address common questions about our event: brownhope.org/reparations-faq

Here are the basics:
-Show up! Black, Brown, and Indigenous people, this event is specifically for you.

-Be nourished! Food and drinks will be provided by Brown Hope and the business sponsor.

-Get 25! Receive $25 in cash as reparations**, paid for in part by white folks.

-Build power! Every Happy Hour will feature a 45 minute discussion about a local and relevant policy topic for us to collectively to weigh in on.

This event is also for white people – our special call to them is to DONATE. Feels free to direct white folks to our donation links on Eventbrite and donorbox.org/brownhope so that they can participate.

You do not have to attend the entire two hour event to receive reparations. Able-bodied participants are required to be physically present to receive their $25. If there are accessibility concerns that impact your ability to be physically present, please email hello@brownhope.org and we will work with you to ensure your eligibility for reparations.

About Brown Hope:

We lead community-grounded initiatives to make justice a lived experience for black, brown, and indigenous people in Oregon.

We envision a future where the truth about this nation’s long history of injustice is self-evident. We envision the survivors of this injustice taking the lead on change. We envision love as a lived, and collective, experience.
