Join us in the PSU Park Blocks (SW) for an installation of Oregon's One Million Bones (OMB) and Oregon Coalition for Humanity's (OCH) Conflict Free City Initiative. You will be able to walk through a path of bones and electronics. The installation is brought to you by OCH, Atma Foundation & the Oregon Holocaust & Resource Center.

OMB is a national public arts project whose aim is to raise awareness of genocides and atrocities going on around the world, this very day. http://www.onemillionbones.org/the-project/

CFCI is an initiative whose aim is to combine awareness and action as to where the minerals which go into our electronics come from.

This event will be interactive and is a beautful way to both honor the lives lost due to mass atrocity and genocide, and to also take part in actions which will help to impact change with regard to ongoing conflicts in DR Congo. There will be an interactive panel discussion between 12:00 - 1:00 pm. Stay tuned for more announcements in that regard.

We hope to see you there--feel free to invite your friends!
