speak up sing out-December 23rd
On the fifth day of our youth designed celebration, we are presenting two four different musical acts as well as a “Climate Justice” panel hosted by a member of our core leadership. Tune in!
Myles Saucedo is an artist who wants to make a difference in his community and speak up about mental health and spread the love of music in his own unique way
Climate Justice Panel
Climate change, a prominent issue for everyone, has time and time again been looked over. The youth of today have decided to take matters into their own hands, as it is their future world, their climate, and their life. In this panel, youth will be asked about their work and perseverance in climate justice. Special thanks to the youth Climate Justice activists from Sunrise who participated in this event, and 350PDX for sponsoring it!
I am a youth performer in Portland Oregon. I play guitar, piano, flute, and saxophone amongst other instruments and I have loved to sing my whole life. I love to volunteer and be involved in the queer community. I do so by volunteering with the Q Center and working their front desk and events, in addition to leading a youth support group with my friend.

My name is Tier, im an indie rock creative who expresses through music, songwriting and color. I have a broad range of musical style interests because I am moved by so many artists who express such beautiful work in a variety of styles. I was raised by parents who played music for me everyday of my life, from so many musical periods and styles. I had the privilege of getting exposure to so much art and artistic expression. I love that art can communicate to people where we are and how much we all share – in our joy, confusion and pain.
My name’s Mei, I’m a senior at Grant High School, and I love to make music! I love performing with and for other people, and that’s not the easiest thing to do right now, but I’m thrilled about the online opportunities, and I look forward to making music in person again soon!
