The RACIAL EQUITY STRATEGY GUIDE is available for DOWNLOAD
The Racial Equity Strategy Guide is offered to City of Portland bureaus and staff as an initial overview of how to begin implementing a racial equity strategy. Created in collaboration with the Office of Equity and Human Rights, this document can assist bureaus in developing a racial equity framework and process.
The Urban League of Portland Racial and Health Equity Promotion program is involved in several cross-cultural community partnerships and coalitions that focus on how Oregon citizens and policymakers may best understand and practice equity. Through our work with these partnerships and coalitions, we are able to promote health equity and address long-standing racial disparities in health.
Partnership for Racial Equity
Formed in January 2011, the Partnership for Racial Equity, is a working group of city staff and community partners, including organizations of color, health advocates, and academics. This partnership tackles such issues as what equity means in day to day practice, and how to develop an equity lens and strategy. We promote the use of important resources, such Equity Toolkits, and modern examples of local and national model equity work.
