ULPDX EODD 2016

Another amazing Urban League of Portland Equal Opportunity Day Dinner! Each year the ULPDX and community members come together to celebrate the organization’s work to help to empower African Americans and other Oregonians to achieve equality in education, employment, and economic security. The event began with a performance by Okropong of the Obo Addy Legacy Project, continued on with great speeches, and concluded with the ceremony for this year’s award winner Maxine Fitzpatrick, Executive Director of Portland Community Reinvestment Initiatives. And, as we do each year, the OMA brought a sample of materials from the ULPDX collection for attendees to view.
