Toward One Oregon: Bridging Oregon’s Urban and Rural Divide

September 3, 2019

$65 – $75

1000-Friends-logoA Community Conversation Led By Professors Ethan Seltzer & Michael Hibbard

Every state has a legacy of truths—stories residents tell to explain why things are how they are. When those truths conflict, as they inevitably do, the result is political, social, and cultural tension.

In Oregon, tensions manifest themselves as wet versus dry, the valley versus the east side, and, perhaps most fundamental, urban versus rural. Our state’s conflicting truths can bedevil and sometimes paralyze us despite our shared state borders and public processes. The aim of this conversation is to explore and imagine what unifies Oregon.

1000 Friends of Oregon is pleased to partner with The Environmental Center and Oregon Humanities to bring a Conversation Project event to Bend.
