State of Black Oregon Report

The Urban League of Portland regularly produces publications, independently and in collaboration with our organizations, that focus on key issues including racial equity, health and employment, most notably the State of Black Oregon series.  Our most recent State of Black Oregon was published in 2015. The report goes beyond simply providing a snapshot of Black Oregon; it lays out an ambitious policy agenda that our community has been using as a guide to shape our work since it was published.
