Portland Monthly's Light a Fire Awards

The August Wilson Red Door Project is proud to announce that we have been named “Best New Nonprofit” in Portland Monthly‘s Light a Fire Awards, the magazine’s annual celebration of the nonprofit community, and the groups and individuals who make Portland a city “to live, love, and grow.”

On October 30th, the August Wilson Red Door Project was honored along with thirteen other nonprofit organizations and individuals, including Outside In, Wisdom of the Elders, and the “I Have a Dream Foundation” and Friends of the Children.

Regarding the August Wilson Red Door Project’s impact, Portland Monthly¬†called the number of conversations stimulated around issues of race “immeasurable,” and lauded the August Wilson Red Door Project’s capacity to generate open discussion about “a topic many Portlanders find difficult, even impossible, to talk about.”
