Mission Statement


PDX Guild of Geeks works to promote diversity and equity in our community through financial and volunteer support and local action. We believe that science fiction and fantasy look forward to what we can be. In our work today, we can accomplish tomorrow.


1) In our fandoms & in our daily lives, we will stand with people of all genders, races, orientations, ethnicities & abilities.

... if nothing we do matters..., then all that matters is what we do.
— Angel

2) Engaging our community’s love of fandoms to create meaningful change.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
— Douglas Adams

3) Having the courage to do what is needed is more important than the certainty of success.

If you can’t do somethin’ smart, do somethin’ right.
— Serenity

4) Even when we fail, we learn.

... it is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not failure, that is life.
— Captain Picard

5) Each of us has a responsibility to leave the world better than we found it.

I have found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness & love.
— Gandalf

6) Integrity is vital to who we are. It is at the forefront of everything we do.

We are who we choose to be.
— Xena
