Tune in to this second episode of Profiles, a unique KBOO podcast series that explores how our communities define crime and criminals and how criminality affects our humanity and relationships.

 

This Live episode of Profiles explores the history of East Portland, as well as the impact of the current gentrification process on communities of color in "the Numbers" and highlights the creative efforts of residents to foster East Portland as a place where neighborhood cohesiveness and cultural understanding are central.

We will hear from community leaders Jo Ann Hardesty, President of the Portland chapter of the NAACP, Arlene Kimura from the East Portland Neighborhood Office and Musse Olol, Chairman of the Somali American Council of Oregon.
