Racial Equity Resource Guide


Western States Center

Portland, OR

Western States Center's mission is to build a progressive movement for social, economic, racial and environmental justice in the eight Western states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Alaska. Its vision is of a just and equitable society governed by a strong, grassroots democracy. The Center works on three levels: strengthening grassroots organizing and community-based leadership; building long-term strategic alliances among community, environmental, labor, social justice and other public interest organizations; and developing the capacity of informed communities to participate in the public policy process and in elections.
