Communities around the state have year-round access to free discussions through the Conversation Project.
Conversation Project is a program of Oregon Humanities that brings Oregonians together to discuss provocative issues and ideas.
More than 60 Conversation Project programs will take place in communities around the state this spring and summer. This season's programs address such topics as homelessness, food choices, immigration and refugee communities, and racial diversity in Oregon.
Four programs are coming to the Hillsboro Brookwood Library this summer. The programs are free an open to the public to attend.
