Comics For Change is a new series of mini-comics from the Portland-based nonprofit Know Your City (KYC) highlighting the work of ten community organizers in Portland. For this follow-up to the Oregon History Comics series, KYC brought together a group of writers and artists to create profiles of activists working on a diverse range of causes from homelessness to LGBT rights. Even longtime Portlanders will probably learn something new from the series.
A woman who started a self-empowered soup kitchen for the homeless. A man who never stopped advocating for the African American community. A group who fights to protect Oregon forests from logging corporations. These stories have one thing in common: they celebrate people who are making Oregon a better place for everyone.
Featuring the stories of these community heroes:
