Save the date - State of Civil Rights Forum - October 27, 2016

Our State of Civil-Rights forum is scheduled for October 27, 2016. Please email Sarah Doening at olmv@oregonlmv.org to register early. Attendance to the forum is free.

This year we are hoping those running for Secretary of state, and the governor position would tell our communities what they are going to do to expand access for opportunities in leadership and representation for minorities. Minorities are shorthanded when it come to leadership and opportunities. We cannot sustain the status quo by indifference. Help us to fight for fairness and equal opportunities.

Ninth Annual Liberty & Hope Awards Dinner

We want to thank those who attended the 9th Annual Liberty & Hope Awards Dinner. This event brought together community organizations to recognize elected officials, business and community leaders in the majority who value diversity, inclusion and access to opportunities for minorities in Oregon.
