We Dine Together Portland

On May 4, 2017 Portland's top restaurants donated tables for six, including a three-course meal and wine, in support of Beyond Differences Portland.

Portlanders gathered to enjoy some incredible food, and our Teen Board members stopped by the restaurants to talk about the importance of Beyond Differences. So many people reached out to us to tell us it was an amazing night -- we can't wait until next year!

Thank you to the following restaurants for your generosity and support:
Ataula Chesa Grassa Northwest Grassa Downtown Ned Ludd Nostrana Oven and Shaker Renata Urban Farmer Verdigris Pok Pok NW

National Programs

Know Your Classmates

Our innovative national programs have inspired a cultural and behavioral shift at middle schools and high schools across the country. Join our movement to end social isolation by bringing one or all of these programs to your school.

Know Your Classmates is designed to explore middle school youth's identity and belonging, understand traditions, and recognize stereotypes. Multi-cultural and multi-faith backgrounds are common in today's schools and Know Your Classmates is speaking honestly with children about their feelings and experiences with one another. Know Your Classmates Day is Friday, October 20, 2017!

No One Eats Alone

Call It Out Day

Call It Out is a powerful engagement program for middle school youth, their teachers and families. Focused on creating inclusive communities online, particularly learning to respond to digital gossip to reduce social isolation, National Call It Out Day is April 27, 2018.
