Sugar Town has always been more than a dance party. From thevery beginning, Sugar Town was designed to be a community - a town within atown. Like any good town, we care about our fellow community members, withinSugar Town and in Portland at large. That's why Sugar Town events regularlyattempt to raise awareness of organizations and causes that need support.
For this edition of Sugar Town I'd like to highlight one aspectof institutional racism that's been very prevalent in Portland -Gentrification. One organization working to address gentrification is Taking Ownership PDX : "Togetherwe renovate and revive Black-owned homes that have requested our help, with anemphasis on enabling Black homeowners to age in place, generate wealth andsimultaneously deter predatory investors and realtors to deflect thegentrification process."
A PORTION OF THE PROFITS WILL BE DONATED TO THIS ORG
* ALL OF THE MOST CURRENT SAFETY GUIDELINES WILL BE ADHERED, SOPLEASE BRING YOUR MASK as it may be required for entry. Since guidelines areever-shifting, I can't predict if there will be capacity limitations at thetime of the event, but I'd recommend showing up earlyto claim a table on the parking lot patio just in case.
