Economic Justice

Oregon Economic Justice Roundtable

The Oregon Economic Justice Roundtable (OEJR) is a shared table of funders, advocates, and other nonprofit organizations advancing collective and sustained action for racial and economic justice around the state. Our challenge is to imagine a new bold and liberatory vision that will guide and support the work of racial and economic justice for our communities. The work of the roundtable also includes advancing policy changes that are necessary for dismantling structures that perpetuate inequitable treatment. We work to create an environment where we can all live beyond the basics of safety and security, into the freedom to actualize dreams, and the power for communities to have control over their own financial and economic destiny.
