The Office of Neighborhood Involvement invites you to review and provide input on Engaging for Equity: A Report on Portland's Diversity and Civic Leadership Program, 2007-2013. The report documents the accomplishments, lessons learned from this groundbreaking program focused on strengthening the City's engagement, livability, organizational capacity, and self-empowerment for Portland's communities of color, immigrant and refugee communities. With the publication of this report, ONI will facilitate a community discussion in 2015 to receive input on the continued development and potential expansion of the Diversity and Civic Leadership program. This conversation will occur simultaneously with a broader discussion about funding equity for ONI’s community engagement programs taking place with our Bureau/Budget Advisory Committee (BAC).
ONI’s goals for the community conversation include:
