City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly to be Speaker at Commencement
May 23, 2019
We are delighted to welcome Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly as our 2019 Commencement Speaker. An important independent press bookseller (Reading Frenzy) and publisher, Eudaly made an indelible mark on the Northwest with her platforming and support of independent and self-publishers of zines, books, and other printed matter. She has been a longtime activist in Portland, focusing on disability and housing rights. We are lucky to have her.
More about Eudaly
Bookseller, publisher, writer, and activist Chloe Eudaly is only the eighth woman to be elected to Portland City Council in its over 100-year history. Before taking her seat on Council, Commissioner Eudaly was the owner and operator of the independent press bookshop, Reading Frenzy (est. 1994), the founder of Show & Tell Press, and the co-founder of the Independent Publishing Resource Center, a maker space for self-publishers currently located in SE Portland. Born and raised in the Metro region, she attended Tigard High School, Metropolitan Learning Center (MLC), and Portland Community College; she's called Portland proper her home since 1988.
Ms. Eudaly came of age as an activist during the first Gulf War and has been involved in a variety of social, economic, and environmental justice causes ever since. For over a decade, she has devoted much of her time and energy to advocating for disability rights, with a focus on school and community inclusion. For the past two years, her attention has turned to Portland's affordable housing crisis. In 2015, she created and administrated an online group devoted to exploring gentrification, displacement, affordable housing and tenants' rights, called The Shed which quickly drew 2000+ members and became a hub for information and resources and a springboard for local activism. It was her involvement in this group and the larger housing advocacy community that inspired her to run for City Council. She is a renter and lives in Portland's Woodlawn neighborhood in NE Portland with her son, Henry.
