As part of the international and local efforts to contain the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Multnomah County Democrats will postpone their annual Celsi Celebration, originally scheduled at the Oregon Convention Center on Saturday, March 21st.

The postponement decision was made due to recommendations from Oregon Health Authority, Governor Brown,  Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization — along with concerns for our diverse communities. While there is a high level of uncertainty as the pandemic spreads around our city, state and the world, it is clear that everyone has a responsibility to institute various mitigation practices of social distancing to help stem that spread.

“We are not going anywhere. The need in our community for activism is only greater now, and we will continue to serve. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements on our activism in these times,” says Lurelle Robbins, chair of the Multnomah County Democrats.
