Tori Williams Douglass
Host of White Homework
Tori is an activist, writer, speaker and anti-racism educator. As a youngster growing up in Portland, she noticed a very clear racial disparity. While getting her young children screened for autism, her interest in working in neuroscience was piqued and she got a job at a neuroscience lab. During her time in the lab, she began to connect the dots on racial disparities, her love of history and neuroscience. These connections led to the creation of White Homework, an antiracism resource for those Dr. King referred to as “People of Goodwill” – those who want to do the work of justice but don’t know where to start. During non-pandemic times, you can find Tori with her kids roaming around Powell’s Books, hiking in the Columbia Gorge or on any of Portland’s running trails.
Executive Producer @CoBa | Host of Coffee With Nate
Maybe you follow him and his #communitybaby posts on Twitter. Maybe you’ve wanted to grab a cup of coffee with him. For whatever reason, you’ve resisted reaching out to Nate Frazier, a.k.a. the People’s Champion. Well, here’s your chance – Coffee With Nate is a community-focused podcast that’s literally no different than Nate sitting down at Deadstock Coffee or Push X Pull with one of his homies. How does he describe it? “Come have coffee with a goofy ass knucklehead and his friends!” That works, too.

Nash Propst has Midwestern roots and a wandering heart. He moved to Portland in the fall of 2018 in search of a fresh start.

Nash spends most of his time in the event production industry utilizing his skills in audio and video presentation. His passions include guitars, amps and effects pedals, which you can usually find him tinkering on in his spare time. He is an aspiring powerlifter and plans to begin competing soon.
