The Office of Equity concept was passed in the Adopted 2011-12 City Budget.
Mayor Adams and I will move forward on this initiative with Portlanders, rather than setting the parameters for the new Office by ourselves. Government didn't create all the disparities we see throughout our community, and government can't fix them alone. We invite you to accept the challenge to do your part to make the changes long desired, but not yet seen in Portland.
How we got to the ordinance adopted on 9/21/11, creating the Office of Equity and Human Rights:
