COVID Safe, Portland Strong Public Service Announcements 

Three videos, airing on local TV stations and YouTube, showcase members of Portland’s Black and Latinx communities. The City of Portland and Multnomah County worked with Black Bald Films to engage with and elevate the  experiences of BIPOC community members during the pandemic. These videos center Black women and a Latinx family, calling for everyone to join together in taking the steps necessary to keep everyone safe.

About the Stay COVID Safe, Be Portland Strong Campaign 

Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), frontline workers and women have been especially impacted by the COVID-19 illness and overall pandemic. The Portland Bureau of Transportation Equity and Inclusion team and Multnomah County Public Health Department’s Chronic Disease Prevention & Health Promotion and Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) programs have partnered to develop communications tools that center and support these populations. The campaign was guided by ubuntu, a Nguni Bantu philosophy with deep roots in Southern Africa. Popularized by South African President Nelson Mandela, ubuntu is often translated as “I am because we are” or “humanity towards others.” We want to be a stronger, more conscious and considerate region coming out of this pandemic and invite you to join us in this effort. The campaign includes:

  1. Partnership with the Portland Art Museum and Carrie Mae Weems Resist COVID / Take 6! Exhibit
  2. Development of three public service announcements produced by Black Bald Films
  3. Social media engagement for the COVID Safe, Portland Strong Pledge
