Participants at Partnership for Safety and Justice's Youth Lobby day

To honor Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday today, we release our second Facing Race: Oregon Legislative Report Card on Racial Equity. This report card, and other organizing efforts around the region that address inequity, is a good reminder for me to continue Dr. King's legacy toward democracy and racial justice. 

Onward!
