Program: Green Lighting Black Lives Matter
Speaker: John Washington, Founder
"The Greenlighting Black Lives Matter Youth Media Project works to showcase videos produced by young aspiring filmmakers of color ages 16-26. They share stories discussing issues of equity, diversity, stigma and much more. This program helps students get hands-on experience with video, pre/post-production, as well as journalism. We work hard to make sure that every student leaves the program having confidence as they enter the workforce while also understanding that they can be Capable, Significant, and Influential. Training for this program is provided by a Collective Impact Partnership spearheaded through the Soul District Business Association."
Please join us at our frolicking, fun and informative breakfast meeting. You’ll find us at the Ecotrust Building in the beautiful Pearl District of Portland, Oregon on Tuesday mornings at 7:15 am. Visitors are always welcome (there is a $10 guest fee which covers a light breakfast).
