On January 16 UEC members partnered with the Portland area HRC for a third year in their MLK DOS event, which focuses on providing resources to queer youth in Portland. Nearly 100 volunteers met at church where they did everything from produce over 100 care packages of socks and toiletries to creating beautiful art pieces that will hang in local disadvantaged youth organizations. HRC and UEC were thrilled to have so many volunteers and also to have Representative Suzanne Bonamici and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, among others, stop by to speak to the event participants.
