    Descriptive info: Poverty rates are a significant measure of desperation, and an illustration of the failures of capitalism to provide adequate incomes for the community at large.. Research.. Existing data that informs decision making in Multnomah County inadequately captures the lived experiences of communities of color.. Rarely do existing reports include dimensions of race and ethnicity.. Much research has been undertaken without the involvement of those most affected by the decisions guided by the research.. The impact is that communities of color are rarely visible at the level of policy.. Data has been used to obscure and oppress rather than to empower communities and eliminate disparities.. This is not acceptable, and leads to inequitable policy and devastating outcomes for people of color.. Communities of Color in Multnomah County: An Unsettling Profile is the first of a series of reports developed in partnership with Portland State University.. The report documents the experiences of communities of color in Multnomah County.. The subsequent six reports will be community-specific reports on the African American,  ...   provide public agencies with the data necessary to reinvent systems in a fair and equitable manner.. We aim to ensure that datasets are culturally sensitive and comprehensive, and to influence research development processes to empower communities and reduce disparities.. Advocating for policy decisions that improve outcomes for people of color is the top priority.. We hold institutional and policy reform and the formation of a powerful racial equity advocacy coalition as central to improving outcomes.. This report builds an important knowledge base from which to advocate and to educate.. Educating our communities and the community at large about the disparities and inequities faced by communities of color is crucial to achieving racial equity.. We seek to unite people in collective action for the advancement of racial equity.. It is time to act.. The Asian and Pacific Islander Community in Multnomah County:.. The Latino Community in..

  • Title: Coalition of Communities of Color : Communities of Color in Multnomah County - An Unsettling Profile
    Descriptive info: Each of the six communities of color that comprise the Coalition have experienced significant negative impacts due to policies and decisions that were made based on inaccurate data.. HISTORY.. In the beginning the Coalition members took time to discuss mutual values and goals, conversations that created a strong foundation for future challenges.. The group agreed that its mission is to unite as a coalition to address the socioeconomic disparities, institutional racism, and inequity of services experienced by the families, children and communities it represents.. The Coalition also agreed to organize communities for collective action with the goal of achieving social change around self-determination, wellness, equality, justice and prosperi- ty.. The members vision is for increased political power, greater representation of communities of color in key leadership positions, and influence in decision making.. This vision stems from the shared values of acceptance and understanding of all cultures, trust, unity, mutual support, and ultimately equity and justice for all people.. Six years later, the Coalition s voice has grown stronger and advocacy efforts have expanded beyond County funding processes into other arenas of  ...   of youth and families that reside in the City of Portland and Multnomah County.. Each of the six communi- ties of color African American, African Immigrant and Refugee, Asian/Pacific Islander, Latino, Native American, and Slavic that comprise the Coalition have experienced significant negative impacts due to policies and decisions that were made based on inaccurate data, as well as policy decisions that are not in touch with the current ethnic communi- ties that reside in Portland.. One example of inadequate data is the current information on high school dropout rates.. The commonly used practice of gathering high school dropout information based only on twelfth grade completion overlooks a number of youth of color who drop out of school before they even reach the twelfth grade.. Focusing solely on one grade does not demonstrate accurate progression of youth leading up to the twelfth grade1, and actually overlooks a large number of youth who leave school before reaching their senior years, making the dropout rate seem much less significant than it actually is, particularly for youth of color and for youth living in poverty..
