About the non-profit organizations

Q Center is a wonderful LGBTQ community center just around the corner from us in North Portland. Their mission is to increase the visibility of and foster connection within metropolitan Portland’s LGBTQ community. The center builds public awareness and support, and celebrates LGBTQ diversity through art, culture, and collaborative community programming.

Portland Women’s Crisis Line is a hugely important organization that offers 24/7 support to survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. They offer services such as safety planning, peer support, crisis intervention, needs assessments, and referrals to community resources.

Bradley Angle offers survivors of domestic and sexual violence options for safety, empowerment, healing and hope, while collaborating with local communities to create social change. Their services include a 24-hour crisis line, transitional housing, support groups, and community-based advocacy.

Bitch Media is the nonprofit organization best known for publishing the magazine Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture. Bitch Media’s mission is to provide and encourage an engaged, thoughtful feminist response to mainstream media and popular culture. They are a fresh, revitalizing voice in contemporary feminism, one that promotes activism and impels social change.

In Other Words has been serving the Portland community as a feminist bookstore, a low-cost and safe events space, and as a community resource center for the past 17 years. It supports, enriches, and empowers communities through educational and cultural events, art and literature.
