Beacons of Portland
- by David Pascual-Matias
Winner of Gateway Film Festival's Best NW Documentary
The city of Portland has a reputation for being a progressive and liberal city but is predominantly white in areas of leadership and residency. From this, students and urban youth of color are living in a system where they have no avenues of higher education, leadership or development. Due to this issue non-profits in Portland are working to change this system by empowering students and urban youth of color to pursue higher education and leadership. The Beacons of Portland film is documenting these events of change from the perspective of the Portland Leadership Foundation and Voices Project.
