At Bridges Oregon, we know that racism, ageism, audism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, ableism, and other systems of oppression have created injustice throughout Oregon and the United States.

As a nonprofit organization, we will make a conscious effort to continually educate ourselves and support the Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), Latinx, and LGBTQ+ communities. We won’t always get it right but we are committed to doing the work of allyship. Our goal is to provide these resources to encourage education and dismantle the isms and biases in our country.

In summary, Bridges Oregon stands in solidarity with our family, friends, clients, volunteers, board members, and colleagues of color as we work to end institutional racism in all its forms, including here in Oregon.
