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. Comics for Change! (Know Your City) collects 10 mini-comics in a box set by some of Portland's best comic writers and illustrators. Join authors Anne Marie DiStefano, Christen McCurdy, and Douglas Wolk; artists Khris Soden and Natalie Sept; and some of the featured activists for a discussion and slideshow of these compelling stories of social justice.
