Governing for Racial Equity Conference 2014

GRE LogoPORTLAND - Portland's Office of Equity and Human Rights is co-sponsoring the Governing for Racial Equity Conference on March 25th and 26th at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Portland.

The GRE Network is a regional partnership of government jurisdictions working to achieve racial equity. We work to eliminate institutional and structural racism, as they are the root causes of racial inequities. Our goals are to strengthen alliances, build organizational and institutional skills and commitment, share promising practices and develop and implement policies that promote racial equity.

The Conference will also feature workshops and presentations on incorporating a racial equity lens for training, policy development, health, transportation, planning and more.

Elected leaders are invited to enroll in a facilitated Executive Session to discuss the opportunities and challenges of governing for racial equity.

The Conference will culminate with the official launch of the GRE Network.

Government employees and elected officials from around the United States have registered.


Registration ends Thursday, March 20th. Don't miss this event! Registration information can be found here.


The Keynote Presentation featuring Neva Walker is open to the public for free.

Neva Walker is the Executive Director of San Francisco’s Coleman Advocates for Children and Youth, and will present ”Inside/Outside Strategies for Community and Government Partnerships for Racial Justice.”
