LEAD is a 7-month transformative leadership training course that fosters interdisciplinary leadership and skill-building in Native communities across Oregon. Each cohort brings together a diverse group of young leaders to learn skills like values-based budgeting, power analysis, and advocacy training, while creating opportunities for personal and professional relationships.
For the 4th year in row, we’re featuring Portland’s black-owned eateries. This year, we’ve grown to a full week! With an expanded directory, theme days and special events. How many can you make it to in one week?
Please check the eateries’ business hours before heading out, please be patient if there are large crowds, and don’t forget to tip well! Most of all: ENJOY THE DELICIOUSNESS.
There are lots of ways you can help local black eateries thrive:
Put your mouth where your money is! and enjoy while directly supporting small businesses.
Bring a friend when you do and please remember to #supportblackownedrestaurants in your posts.
Want to volunteer? We’d love more hands keeping things running and getting the word out!
Will you sponsor us next year? This will allow us to throw bigger events and provide restaurants with more resources.
Mercatus strives to change the narrative of entrepreneurship to better demonstrate the diversity and vibrancy of Portland. In Storytelling for Your Biz, Cookie Zvovushe will lead you through several topics that business owners/storytellers struggle with, and provide you an opportunity to build the basics of storytelling.
Speaking with confidence
Being safe and vulnerable
Piecing together your story arc
Cookie Zvovushe (who writes under the pseudonym Jagger Blaec) is a professional storyteller. Cookie has shared stories within national publications such as O Magazine and The Washington Post while also sharing words on more local platforms such as The Portland Mercury and Portland Monthly. Most recently, Cookie has joined the team of the local production of NYC’s The Moth StoryHour as one of the show’s producers. And when Cookie isn’t sharing stories or helping give others a voice to share their own narrative you can share space with Cookie in a yoga class. You can follow more of this journey on Instagram at @Basic.Blaec.Girl.
Proceeds from this event will go to (Com)motion Center

The ONE Coalition has developed a business development series utilizing the voices of our community and representing our collective wisdom in support of business development and ownership for Native American entrepreneurs across Oregon & SW Washington. On August 3rd, ONAC hosted business owners, program participants, Tribal representatives, and government partners at Hatch Lab PDX to learn more about this exciting new program and the StartUpOregon Platform as it supports Economic Development opportunities by leveraging web-based technologies to expand our reach.
We are so thankful to our foundational supporters, Kauffman Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, The Oregon Community Fund, Business Oregon, and The Collins Foundation for making this program possible.
Project Information The purpose of the Project is to improve the safety and operations on I-5 between I-405 and I-84, of the Broadway/Weidler interchange, and on adjacent surface streets in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange and to enhance multimodal facilities in the Project Area. In achieving the purpose, the Project also will support improved local connectivity and multimodal access in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange and improve multimodal connections between neighborhoods located east and west of I-5. The Project addresses the following primary needs:
• I-5 Safety: I-5 between I-405 and I-84 has the highest crash rate on urban interstates in the State of Oregon. Crash data from 2011 to 2015 indicate that I-5 between I-84 and the merge point from the NE Broadway ramp onto I-5 had a crash rate (for all types of crashes) that was approximately 3.5 times higher than the statewide average for comparable urban interstate facilities.
• I-5 Operations: The Project Area is at the crossroad of three regionally significant freight and commuter routes: I-5, I-84, and I-405. As a result, I-5 in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange experiences some of the highest traffic volumes in the State of Oregon, carrying approximately 121,400 vehicles each day, and experiences 12 hours of congestion each day.
• Broadway/Weidler Interchange Operations: The complexity and congestion at the I-5 Broadway/Weidler interchange configuration is difficult to navigate for vehicles (including transit vehicles), bicyclists, and pedestrians. This impacts access to and from I-5 as well as to and from local streets. The high volumes of traffic on I-5 and Broadway/Weidler in this area contribute to
congestion and safety issues (for all modes) at the interchange ramps, the Broadway and Weidler overcrossings of I-5, and on local streets in the vicinity of the interchange.
• Travel Reliability on the Transportation Network: Travel reliability on the transportation
network decreases as congestion increases and safety issues expand. The most unreliable travel
times tend to occur at the end of congested areas and on the shoulders of the peak periods. Due to
these problems, reliability has decreased on I-5 between I-84 and I-405 for most of the day. Periods
of congested conditions on I-5 in the Project Area have grown over time from morning and
afternoon peak periods to longer periods throughout the day.
