Portland Mercury

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Portland is a major threat to the Mercury's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage or everything happening in Portland. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Written by Dmae Roberts, performed by Jane Vogel Mantiri, Harvest tells the story of how Oregon's exclusion laws affected four generations of Asian Americans in one family, rewritten specifically to incorporate the way those behaviors are returning under the cover of COVID-19 fears. Performance is followed by a panel discussion.
