Shifting the Scales of Wealth and Power

Sharing the Oregon Economic Justice Roundtable – A community driven, bold grantmaker, shared table approach to tackling the roots of racial and economic injustice.

The COVID-19 crisis this year, in addition to protests against police brutality, brought existing racial inequities into sharp focus as Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color experienced disproportionately higher rates of illness and death from the virus. To truly rebuild from COVID we must address the root causes of the racial inequities and wealth disparities which exact such a sad and heavy toll on our communities.

Please join us for a discussion about the Oregon Economic Justice Roundtable – a shared table of majority BIPOC grantmakers and community organizations working together to confront the roots of racial wealth inequities and develop more inclusive funding practices. This is an important place-based model for grantmakers interested in supporting and participating in community led change. We’ll discuss the Roundtable goals and principles, the origins, evolution, and structure of this approach, trust building among Roundtable participants and developing policy priorities and action steps toward change to redistribute wealth and power.
