Our Children Oregon stands in solidarity with the Black community in demanding the dismantling of oppressive systems and in doing the work for racial justice. To name, challenge, and actively work against the pervasive racial inequalities—white supremacy, anti-blackness, structural racism—that permeate our communities, stripping generations of the circumstances, the supports, and the resources necessary to not only thrive but to simply live. We cannot do right by all children in Oregon until we do right by Black children.

As a whole-child advocacy organization, we stand with and urge our legislators and constituents to join in support of the Oregon Legislative POC Caucus calls for action on police accountability.
