Nonprofit partners attend a Community Strengthening Cohort retreat

At United Way of the Columbia Willamette we focus our work on serving the most marginalized and underserved groups and we know that centering race and ethnicity is critical to ending the historical and social inequities that continue to exist in our region. To learn more about our commitment to racial equity visit our Leading with Equity page

As part of our continuing work on advancing racial equity, we’ve put together a compilation of local and national resources created by multiple organizations. The content in this section includes a compilation of multimedia resources to explore racism for oneself. No one is born racist or antiracist; these result from the choices and actions we make. Being antiracist results from a conscious decision to make frequent/consistent, equitable choices daily. These resources can assist one in ongoing self-awareness and self-reflection when learning about and addressing racism.
