Unite Oregon members come from diverse cultural, ethnic, economic, and religious backgrounds. We’re immigrants, refugees, people of color, U.S.-born citizens, rural Oregonians, LGBTQ folks, workers, students, moms, dads, grandparents and, most importantly, allies in the struggle for social justice. We share a common belief in a multi-racial, multicultural democracy inclusive of all — and the passion to put our beliefs into action. Get to know us more, join us, or support us.

This is a new process group that is convening after the 2016 Presidential election. This election cycle inarguably stirred deep emotions in the general population and fear in populations of color and for other marginalized identities as well. Our intention is to create a safe space that provides Unite Oregon community members a place to discuss what living in Oregon means during an era in which the “post-racialism” myth prevails while white nationalism takes center stage.
The group will be open to Unite Oregon community members and their networks. Non-People of Color are welcome but are encouraged to let people of color and immigrant/refugee voices lead the conversation.
