The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Portland Audubon Nature Night is proud to host Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty for a presentation about vision, unity, and progression. Whether you’re an experienced organizer or new to community building, you will surely learn something new and be inspired to bring positive change to Portland by attending 2019’s first Nature Night Speaker Series event.

Commissioner Hardesty will share a bit of her past, spanning her experiences as a young woman abroad in the Navy, establishing herself on the frontlines of our Oregon’s non-profits, to helping launch the social equity and climate change legislation "Portland Clean Energy Fund," to campaigning successfully to become Portland’s first female African American City Commissioner.

She will then envision her future. How will she bring what she has learned throughout her journey to her new role? How can social justice and environmental conservation work together? Join up and learn more about Portland's newest Commissioner.
