Racial Equity Lens and Empowerment Tool

This is a tool of guiding questions for Portland Parks and Recreation (PP&R) to help bring about more equitable outcomes for all communities. Applying an equity lens to our work helps the bureau reflect on how our decisions may disproportionately burden communities, such as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), people living with disabilities, people living
with low-income, Immigrant and Refugee, and unsheltered communities. By centering the people most impacted by systemic racism, everyone benefits.

Lente de equidad racial y herramienta de empoderamiento

Esta es una herramienta que consiste en unas preguntas guiadas para el departamento de Parques y Recreación de Portland (PP&R), para ayudarnos a tener resultados más equitativos en todas nuestras comunidades. Aplicar una lente de equidad en nuestro trabajo ayuda al departamento a reflexionar sobre cómo nuestras decisiones pueden sobrecargar desproporcionadamente a ciertas comunidades, como las BIPOC (Afroamericanos, indígenas y personas de color), personas con discapacidades, viviendo con bajos ingresos, inmigrantes y refugiados, y comunidades desprotegidas. Al centrarnos en la gente más afectada por el racismo sistémico, todos nos beneficiamos.
