Late April, Metro held a screening of Sista in the Brotherhood for elected officials, contractors and folks who deal in procuring construction contracts, basically the people who have the most power to set up standards on creating a truly diverse and cohesive workforce. It was an engaging panel with me, Roberta Hunte, Gabrielle Schuster from Metro, Amy James Neel from Oregon Tradesowmen, Inc., Michael Burch from the Carpenter's Union, and Lauren Holmes from Crutcher Lewis. We are grateful to Metro for the chance to screen because this is exactly the audience we wanted for the film!

Afterward, The Portland Tribune ran an article on the front page of their business section on the film, the panel and the deeper issues.
