What a day! About 30 of us dancers, staff, and friends took to the streets of downtown Portland today to pass out flyers, talk to people, and galvanize support for OBT. We covered a lot of ground over several hours and made some wonderful connections with people. Here's part of the crew gathered at Jamison Park (including our arts-supporting mayor, Sam Adams!):
All in all, today was a great success and a testament to the power of personal connections. I have confidence that the work we did today will make a difference. Congratulations to us all, and onward we go!
