Racial Equity Graphic
For years, communities of color in Portland have organized for government to respond to institutional racism. That community activism led to the creation of the Office of Equity and Human Rights which has focused on institutionalizing equity throughout the City bureaus' policies, practices, and procedures.

Join MRG Foundation and the City of Portland as we host a community conversation about racial equity in City government on Monday, November 14 at 6:00 p.m., at APANO JAMS (8114 SE Division St.)

We will discuss:
  • the importance of racial equity
  • the role, progress, and challenges of the City's Office of Equity and Human Rights
  • community equity needs and concerns
  • how the Office of Equity and Human Rights can support and be more responsive to community
  • how community can hold City government accountable
