One way MRG Foundation furthers social justice movements is by supporting activist women artists. The Lilla Jewel Tour is a 3-city tour that will feature the film Sista in the Brotherhood by MRG’s 2016 Lilla Jewel Award winner Dawn Jones Redstone. At each stop, Eugene, Portland, and Bend, we will host a screening and panel featuring local organizations to explore the struggles and triumphs of Black tradeswomen as well as issues of economic and racial justice. Join us for a night of conversation, community and connections.
First stop on the tour is Eugene, OR on June 8th. Lilla Jewel Award winner Dawn Jones Redstone and Roberta Hunte will be in attendance for discussion after. Details here. Additional stops in Bend and Portland to be announced soon.
More info coming soon, but we've been accepted to the Bluestocking Film Series happening July 14-16 in Portland, Maine. Director Dawn Jones Redstone will be in attendance!

Yesterday we screened the film with Metro for elected officials and folks interested in workforce diversity issues. We had a panel afterward with industry professionals joining Roberta and Dawn including Gabriele Schuster with Metro, Michael Burch with the Carpenters Union, Amy James Neel with Oregon Tradeswomen and Lauren Holmes with Lease Crutcher Lewis. We are grateful to Metro for the opportunity and are exhilarated to see the film being used in this way!
