Together Again: A fundraising gala for EMO

September 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$50
Together Again

Join us for a special evening of stories, music and friends highlighting the work of EMO. We will also honor extraordinary individuals and organizations whose courage, moral vision and commitment to action have contributed profoundly to making Oregon a better place. This outside event (under a tent) is the first of its kind since 2019. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to be TOGETHER AGAIN.

“Ecumenists of the Year” will be awarded to leaders of Lift Every Voice Oregon (LEVO): Rabbi Michael Cahana, Marilyn Keller and The Rev. W.J. Mark Knutson. These three faith leaders served as chief petitioners of IP 17 and catalyzed the signature process to get a gun safety measure on Oregon’s ballot this fall. LEVO is an interfaith organization of Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Jewish and Native American spiritual leaders committed to reducing gun violence.

The “Emerging Leader” award will be presented to Taylor Stewart, founder and executive director of the Oregon Remembrance Project. His organization helps communities in Oregon unearth stories of injustice and engage in the necessary truth telling and repair required to reconcile instances of historical harm. On Juneteenth 2021, Stewart led efforts to dedicate a historical marker about the 1902 racial lynching of Alonzo Tucker in Coos Bay, Ore.
