Back in April, we were given the privilege of interviewing incredible creatives, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and innovators involved with the Mercatuspdx magazine launch at the Momentous event(Elevating, Connecting, & Celebrating Entrepreneurs of Color). We had HEAVY HITTER guests! We sat down with the greats, including @commissionerhardesty who’s doing major work for POC in PDX, Jamaal Hale at @goodgreenpdx who did beautiful print work for the mag, our love and organizer Amanda with @prosperportland , the incredible force that is @themagicblackunicorn , Kimberly Branam, and the baddest of the bad @savinamonet . Let your ears be serenaded with the sweet sounds of pdx activism, passion, and heart. Shout out of the year goes to @y.g.b.portland , @prosperportland , and @mercatuspdx for giving a platform to the beautiful voices we were so honored to sit with. Much love to all involved and beyond— y’all are the pillars of the village. We love you. #ittakesavillage

We're officially off wedding hiatus! VillageVibesPodcast had an incredible opportunity this weekend to hear the stories of some amazing POC vendors at My People's Market. It's a long one but it's worth hearing the beautiful things folks are doing for their communities locally and at large. Please take a listen if you are at all invested in community, unity, or just hearing how someone is changing their corner of the world. Major ups to My People's Market, Y.G.B., The Printory, Travel Portland, Prosper Portland, and MercatusPDX. This week was the best representation of #ittakesavillage
What happens when we go to a concert? Listen to find out!
