Oregon needs to mitigate the harm caused by decades of systematic racism.

In terms of equity programs, Oregon is embarrassingly behind the times. As Oregon’s cannabis tax revenues grow, the communities most hurt by the War on Drugs are left behind while others prosper.

How can we achieve equity?

The Equity Investment Act will create generational wealth equity in the communities most harmed by the War on Drugs and the criminal justice system. The act establishes a fund to provide grants to community-based organizations supporting workforce development, job training, and paths to home and land ownership.

Why?

People of color in Oregon have been unjustly targeted by law enforcement and the courts, incarcerated at disproportionate rates, and subsequently excluded from full participation in the benefits of citizenship that include voting, employment, housing, and health care. The War on Drugs and the criminal justice system has pushed these people and communities into poverty, which has been compounded by redlining and gentrification.
