Volunteers of America Oregon stands with the communities, organizations, and individuals across the country and world fighting against the systemic racism that exists within our nation. Significant social change has come in our country from peaceful demonstrations, marches, advocacy, from voting for change, and from elected officials rising to the occasion. We are at the crossroads and must take the active steps to eliminate systemic racism. Together we can become the nation that was promised in our founding documents. May we all find wisdom and guidance to address the issues, practices, and barriers that divided and separate us as a people.
Volunteers of America Oregon has a history of reaching out to populations that have been marginalized, that have been victims of bias and discrimination. We stand for social justice. Today we stand by our commitment to help the most vulnerable in our community, no restrictions. We stand for racial justice and equity.
You are not alone. We stand with you!
