Parks for New Portlanders, in partnership with Portland Sunday Parkways, nonprofits, and refugee and immigrant organizations, invited the community to join in at their Walk with Refugees and Immigrants (a walk to inspire a more compassionate, generous, and welcoming Portland!)
Thousands gathered at Gateway Discovery Park for a one-mile walk to Knott Park, alongside our refugee and immigrant neighbors in a show of support. This event recognizes the unique experiences of new Portlanders, of all ages and backgrounds.
Refugee and immigrant stories were shared as well as diverse music, food and other family activities.
