From Flint to Standing Rock; from the Salmon Wars to lynching, throughout history water has systematically been weaponized against communities of color. Join us at Oxbow Regional Park for stories of Black and Brown resistance, resilience and struggle for equitable access to water. We will delve into the depths of Black, Indigenous and other communities of color’s cultural histories, perseverance in the face colonialism and varied uses of water. This event will be held outdoors as a walking tour and discussion.

Pets policy: To protect plants, wildlife and people, Metro does not allow pets at most regional parks and natural areas. Pets can damage sensitive habitat and threaten wildlife the region has worked to protect. In natural areas where dogs are not allowed, people see more wildlife and get closer to it. Seeing-eye dogs or other service animals are allowed. Please bring cleanup materials.
