Bottom Line for Portland
By donating to the Urban League of Portland, you stand along side us in believing that all people should have equal access to the same opportunities. Your donation supports a community of Black Oregonians with increased access to emergency assistance and increase access to education and workforce empowerment, senior services, healthcare support, food and shelter.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
As a culturally specific organization, we work tirelessly to dismantle the legacy of inequity and institutional neglect of communities of color. Our work is to address the continued urgency for social and racial justice required for our community to thrive. Our advocacy and civic engagement programs are proof that through skillful organizing, Black Oregonians influence public policy and legislation, and promote racial equity. Our purpose is to put forward a strategy for action that include powerful trainings to promote social justice and civic leadership; we hold public forums on important issues in our communities; we canvas and get out the vote. We push Oregon to be a more just and equitable place to live, work and thrive.
