We are very excited to announce that we will be hosting a book release party for “The Portland Bottom Line” on Wednesday, November 10th from 5-8pm at the Mercy Corps Northwest Gallery (45 SW Ankeny St.) The book release will feature the book’s editors and contributors as well as members from the Mercy Corps Northwest Team.
