Speaker: Rabbi Debra Kolodny

Learn about a path towards building a kind, welcoming and safe Portland in the wake of a remarkable rise in public hate incidents. We need not acquiesce to this shift. Together we can ensure that all the values we hold are made manifest!


Rabbi Debra Kolodny has been bringing a spiritual perspective, an activist passion and an intersectional lens to racial and economic justice, women’s, peace environmental and LGBTQ causes since 1981. An experienced public speaker, she has taught in hundreds of venues on dozens of topics and has been interviewed on radio and television. She has also published on blog sites, in newspapers, magazines and anthologies. She has taught Interrupting Hate in Public Spaces throughout Oregon to over 450 people since January 2017.
