The Spirit of Vanport Lives On

  • Portland Expo Center - Hall A 2060 North Marine Drive Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

As we explore our history of “othering” and Oregon’s racial legacy, we invite you to join us this Memorial Day at the site of the Assembly Center. Here, 4,000 Japanese Americans were interned before being sent to camps in 1942. Here, adjacent lands held thousands of American migrants working The Kaiser shipyards. Here, the Native Community gathers to this day celebrating their original connection to homeland. With a wide lens, we celebrate the resilience of “The Vanport Spirit” and its legacy with a full day of memory activism activities.
