Unified by Myself

BY SARAA GREEN
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 12, 2017

Saraa Green asks: How can we be unified when are trained and taught to only see the outside layer of a person and not the inside? Biologically we are made the same so why should the color of our skin interrupt the interaction to be unified.

Unity is Majority’s Utopian Dream

BY MARK WYNER
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 12, 2017

The internet has been a catalyst of opening up societies into a global awareness. It has truly narrowed the divide between human beings. Other new technologies have opened doors for those with visual/aural impairments, and those living with illiteracy. These unifying ecosystems are a reflection of how we value equity. Mark Wyner explores how we’re doing with this.

Lenore.

BY LENORE .
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 12, 2017

Since forming Lenore., Miller & Pearson have gained full-time collaborators in seasoned Portland musicians Edward Cameron (classical guitar) & Jessie Dettwiler (cello), who have contributed significantly to the evolution of Lenore.'s sound — a dreamy melancholic blend of harmony-driven folk with an
ever-present sense of hope. More recently, Lenore. began playing with a rhythm section that features a rotating cast of bassists & drummers. 

Lenore. released their debut self-titled album produced by John Askew on 9/15/2017, and embarked on an east coast tour in October of that same year.

Musings on Unity

BY JOCELYN RAHM
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 12, 2017

The Beast Has No Belly

BY JIM BRUNBERG
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 12, 2017

It's pat to say we have more common ground than we have differences.  Yet, we just said it. There is an art to dropping assumptions, in approaching people and issues without prejudice, as children do. Jim Brunberg believes the next step is actually hearing the stories, and sharing them in a way that doesn't pander, condescend, or otherwise filter the truth or rob it of its nuance.
