Event Details

Portland Fashion Designers and artists will come together to unite to support social justices in our community and nationally to support two main historical causes. NEO Clothing, Kae West, Ragz-2-Muffins, and Not Quiet Neon will present their collections to raise funds in support of two very important movements. Meaurement 97 & We Stand In Solidarity With Standing Rock. We will have a runway fashion show, an art event, a silent auction/raffle, dancers to perform, and eclectic sounds from dj's embodying the spirit of social justice.

Palani Bearghost, Kay Bridges, and Reyna Lopez will host this Fashion and Art Benefit show for two current social justice campaigns: the Yes on 97 campaign and the Movement & Uprising of Indigenous Peoples that stand with Standing Rock. The theme of the evening will be “Art for Justice.”

As artists and activists our goal is to raise awareness on these issues. Big corporations are getting away with using and abusing our people, our lands, and our resources to make a profit. As small business owners and artists we support causes that hold big corporations accountable to our communities.

About the causes:
Measure 97 is a game-changing economic justice ballot measure that aims at getting big and out-of-state corporations to pay their fair share in corporate taxes so that we can fund education, senior services and health care. Oregon’s schools and services are struggling, all the while corporate profits are at their highest, and corporate taxes are the lowest in the country. Measure 97 raises the minimum tax on the biggest and baddest corporations doing business in Oregon today so we can raise our graduation rates, make healthcare more accessible, and make sure seniors can retire with dignity. This also levels the playing field for small businesses and individuals who carry most of the tax burden in this state.

We Stand In Solidarity With Standing Rock: Protect The Sacred

Currently, Standing Rock is on the forefront protecting Mother Earth and the water that is being threatened by the pipeline that runs through 4 states North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois. The Dakota Access pipeline would pass through Standing Rock reservation putting sacred sites and culturally important landscapes at risk as well as threatening the waters that provide life in other areas. NAME OF EVENT will be hosting a silent auction/raffle that will be donating a portion of its funds to give back to Standing Rock supporting with supplies, legal battle ahead, and people that will be traveling to North Dakota to protect the water and lands on the forefront. May we be part of the change to protect our future generations and present. Its up to us to protect our human rights and our Mother: Mother Earth.
