Power, Privilege and Racial Diversity in Oregon

Although census data show Oregon’s population becoming more racially diverse, the perception persists that we are one of the whitest states in the nation. Many Oregonians value racial diversity and the dimension and depth it adds to our lives, yet we remain largely isolated from one another and have yet to fulfill the vision of a racially integrated society. What systems are in place to prevent the racial integration and equity many of us strive for? Knowing what we do, how do we act as individuals and communities, to embrace the opportunity presented by a more diverse Oregon?

This is the focus of “Power, Privilege, and Racial Diversity in Oregon,” a free conversation with Willamette University professor Emily Drew.
