Pride 2017!

  • NW 9th and Couch

We're Marching in Portland Pride this year!

Latino Network is proud to be participating in the Portland Pride Parade this year to show our organization's support for the LGBTQ community and in particular our queer Latinx community members.

The parade is an opportunity to provide visibility to and celebrate the diversity of culture and contributions of the LGBTQ community. Through participating in events such as these, Latino Network can help break the stigma towards the LGBTQ community and the misperceptions that exist of the Latinx LGBTQ community. Many organizations, faith communities and businesses will also be marching in the parade. 
 
The parade takes place on June 18th and we would like to have a large group of staff, volunteers and participants representing Latino Network. Family members and friends are welcome to join in this celebration! 


Want to march?

Meet us on the corner of NW 9th and Couch St. by no later than 10:30!

The Series:

Ollin Social Justice Film Series explores social justice themes that affect us today. Local advocates and elected officials respond at the end of each film to inspire and guide us on how to move forward together. Proceeds from this film series go to support Latino Network’s advocacy efforts. At the lobby before each film, Latino Network will table with opportunities for people to volunteer, donate and/or learn how to involve yourself to make a collective impact for the success of our Latino youth and families. 

The Film:

Released in 1954, SALT OF THE EARTH is a feminist drama set in a small mining community in New Mexico. Based on the true events of a 1951 miners’ strike, the movie profiles the struggles of workers against brutal conditions and treatment due to corporate negligence. Esperanza Quintero, the wife of a protesting miner, must combat sexism and racism on both sides of the conflict to build a better future for her family. SALT OF THE EARTH highlights the complexity of gender, labor, and family relationships during a hostile political climate. Directed by black-listed director Herbert Biberman, the film stars Rosaura Revueltas, Juan Chacón, and Will Geer along with a cast of majority nonprofessional actors.

    Inspired by last year’s political events, it is clear now, more than ever before, we need to unite, align our beliefs and move forward together. As the election unfolded, we were inundated by questions from Latino families and youth we serve at Latino Network about their fate and safety. We responded with community forums that brought lawyers, activists and lawmakers together to answer questions and provide guidance. We were also inundated with requests from the community at-large wanting to know how to help and make a meaningful impact to Latino Network’s youth and families. A few meaningful conversations with staff and a little love from the Hollywood Theatre and a social justice film series was born!
