Have an event coming up you’re looking to spread the word about? 

Send an email to to see how we can help!

When emailing please include: 

  1. Any relevant info about the event (dates/times, location, ticket links, info sheets etc.)
  2. What you're looking for from us, preferably in the subject or early in the email.* This could be things like being a media sponsor, paid underwriting packages, inviting us to attend, PSAs* AV services, getting an on-air interview, booking an XRAY DJ, having us be present there, etc.
  3. Who this event is for, so that we can place it appropriately on our schedule. If music, let us know the general genre/style. If non-music, what topics will someone that goes to this care about? 

Timeline: For those new to working with us, without an established event promotion relationship or agreement, we need to receive your submission at least three weeks prior to your event for inclusion on our events calendar or newsletter, and preferably six weeks if you are interested in a radio spot about your event (i.e. underwriting). We are unlikely to consider last minute requests. 

Please Note: We have a very limited capacity and unfortunately cannot accommodate all requests. The clearer your ask and the more obvious of a fit with our programming and/or mission, the more likely we'll prioritize it. We unfortunately cannot respond to every request, but welcome you nudging/following up with us to get it on our radar if it's a good fit and we haven't replied.

*Only nonprofits and/or things benefitting the wider community (such as something like demonstrations, disaster relief, mutual aid campaigns, etc.) are eligible for PSAs typically, with anything else being up to our discretion and typically done on media trade, paid campaigns, or as an act of good will because we feel strongly about something. All scripts need to be approved by us for our FCC compliance standards--even if a recorded file already exists.

Human Access Project (HAP) feels a grand opening party is important to bring attention to how much the river edge of the beach has changed. This party is an invitation to St. Johns to celebrate the new dock and beach. HAP anticipates St. Johns, in time, will turn into a river recreation playground - very likely this summer. This party represents a milestone moment of this change for St. Johns, North Portland and the city as a whole.

Human Access Project has been working on improving the recreational value of Cathedral Park Beach since 2021.
In 2021 HAP recruited 100 volunteers to remove 25 tons of concrete and rubble from the North side of the Cathedral Park Beach.

In 2022 HAP received an American Rescue Plan grant of $300k. They negotiated with Portland Parks and Recreation to use this money to replace the Cathedral Park Dock. The total cost of the dock is $900k. HAP catalyzed the dock replacement. The dock will have swim ladders and will be elevated by pontoons to improve water circulation inside of the dock.
In 2023 HAP recruited 150 volunteers to remove 125 tons of concrete and rubble from the South side of the dock. They had divers come out to look for trash inside the dock. The result of removing the concrete on the south side of the dock is that there is a new South Beach at the park where people can hang out, walk their dogs etc.

HAP is actively working on pulling permits to remove derelict pilings from the beach which they hope to do this summer in September. They foresee continuing to be involved in upgrading and stewarding the river experience at Cathedral Park.
