Loneliness and Aging: A Conversation with Pamela Slaughter

April 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Free Discussion: Loneliness and Aging

The event is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project.

Loneliness and isolation are common experiences for elderly people, especially for those who do not have nearby family members or who are not computer literate. What do you know about the elders in your life or in your neighborhood? Are they connected to their families in an enriching way? Do they belong to a caring community of some kind? This conversation is for elderly people and people who live near elders or have elderly people in their lives to explore questions, experiences, and obstacles to showing up for elderly people and to generate ideas for connection.

This is the focus of Loneliness and Aging, a free conversation with Pamela Slaughter on Thursday, April 11 at 5:30pm. This event is hosted by Curry Public Library and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. RSVP below.

Pamela Slaughter is a lifelong Oregonian with varied interests. She retired from her career as an adult protective service investigator for Multnomah County, where she saw firsthand how devastating loneliness and isolation can be. Pamela is the founder and executive director of People of Color Outdoors, a nonprofit designed to help facilitate the reconnection of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to the outdoors. She is the author of the children’s book Hi! My Name is Robin!, published in 2020, which she hopes will encourage families to bird watch together.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful and challenging conversations. Oregon Humanities (921 SW Washington, Suite 150; Portland, OR 97205) connects Oregonians to ideas that change lives and transform communities. More information about Oregon Humanities’ programs and publications, which include the Conversation Project, Consider This, Humanity in Perspective, Facilitation Training, Grants, and Oregon Humanities magazine, can be found at oregonhumanities.org. Oregon Humanities is an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities and a partner of the Oregon Cultural Trust.
