Oregonian editorial highlights conversation with the Latino community - August 2, 2010
Bookmark and Share

Yesterday's Sunday Opinion section of the Oregon included an editorial by Editor George Rede about the July 21 roundtable Mayor Sam Adams had with members of the Latino community. Hosted by the Latino Network and attended by some two dozen participants, the meeting was another discussion in what will undoubtedly be a longer conversation about addressing disparities for communities of color. Mayor Adams also facilitated a Portland Plan workshop sponsored by the Latino Network at the World Trade Center in February, where we discussed many of the same issues. 

 

There's definitely a convergence of thinking about equity in Portland. That's why it's such an important part of the Portland Plan. Whether in regards to race, ethnicity, gender, physical/mental abilities, sexual orientation, age or income level, equity touches many of us. But communities of color are even more disproportionately affected by disparities. See an overview of the Coalition of Communities of Color report on our website in the equity section here: http://www.portlandonline.com/portlandplan/index.cfm?c=52630
