Hear Rukaiyah Adams — native Portlander, community activist and chief investment officer at Meyer Memorial Trust — speak about economic inequities and how to advance social change in our communities.
Adams oversees investment activities at Meyer, the third largest community foundation in Oregon. Meyer recently went through a fundamental shift in its funding priorities driven by diversity, equity and inclusion priorities. Adams brings her skills in the finance world together with a deep commitment to all Portlanders, including communities of color.
Adams believes that our highest goal should be taking care of one another.
Celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and consider the link between his work and confronting economic injustice today.
