WE'VE MOVED!!! As of Feb. 1, In Other Words is serving you better at her new location at 8 NE Killingsworth, on the corner at N. Williams.
The new location is almost double the size of the old, and the staff and more than 50 regular volunteers who run the store are eager to have a larger space where feminist, grassroots community-building can take place.
In negotiations for the lease of the space, In Other Words and the Albina Women's League (a non-profit organization with a mission to support youth in the African-American community) discovered that although they served different communities, many of their values of community were similar. The bookstore will renew the Albina Women's League space as a center for community meetings, educational opportunities, a safe place for kids, and a place to develop community partnerships. Already In Other Words has begun to collaborate with new neighbor, Talking Drum Books, to hold a race and gender reading and action group. In Other Words has also initiated communication with neighborhood community organizations such as Sisters in Action for Power, Ethos and North Portland Bike Works.
