Organization mission statement: w(HERE) we are is a new collective of designers, illustrators, makers, creatives and beyond, who are POC (people of color) and LGBTQ+. We want to remove the veil in Portland. This collective was formed specifically for POC and LGBTQ+ folks who wish to take action on the questions: “Where are the designers, illustrators and creatives who are people of color and the LGBTQ+ in Portland?” and “How can we increase our visibility and impact?” We aim to move beyond a discussion about the lack of diversity in the creative industries, and become part of a movement to showcase and grow the visibility of creatives of color (COC) and LGBTQ+ creatives impacting Portland today.

Organization currently applying to become a 501(c)3 non-profit
