Our Mission

Led by people of color, immigrants and refugees, rural communities, and people experiencing poverty, we work across Oregon to build a unified intercultural movement for justice.

Our Values

  • Inclusivity: We believe in creating welcoming, inclusive spaces that make room for all people to be their full, authentic selves.

  • Racial Justice: Because of the United States' history of racism, we believe in putting racial justice front and center in our work.

  • Social Justice: We believe in sharing power, opportunities, and resources to ensure equitable participation and representation in an increasingly multicultural society.

  • Empowerment: We believe all people have the potential to become leaders and agents of change.

  • Stewardship: We believe in stewardship and respect for the environment, both within our own organization and in our broader communities.

  • Respect: We believe in the fundamental human dignity of all people.

  • Transparency: We commit to organizational transparency and accountability to our members and to the communities we organize.

  • Leadership: We believe that the people most affected by injustice should be the individuals and communities leading and advocating for solutions.

  • Equity: We examine all issues through perspectives of race, economic status, immigration status, and gender to promote equity and inclusion of all.

  • Vibrancy: We build strong, vibrant connections through the celebration of families, cultures, and communities. We believe that justice is a journey, and our creation of community is what sustains us on that journey.
