Making Space for Community Conversation in Oregon

Oregon Humanities, the state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, supports community dialogue around important issues through its Conversation Project. Facilitated conversations held on a variety of topics challenge community members to express their opinions and consider new perspectives. The program inspires inquiry and reflection and fosters trust, relationships, and a sense of agency—all with the goal of creating more just communities throughout the state.

–Adam Davis, Executive Director, Oregon Humanities
