The goal of the Southern Oregon Coalition for Racial Equity, or SOEquity, is to create an antiracist Southern Oregon. We will do this by serving as a centralized hub for organizations, businesses, community groups, and individuals in Southern Oregon whose mission, in part or wholly, is to address and remedy the racial inequities this region faces. We are not a direct service provider. Instead, we will focus on providing resources, training, and networking opportunities to Southern Oregon entities who wish to align their values with those of SOEquity.
The Southern Oregon Coalition for Racial Equity (SOEquity) was formed in direct response to the murder of George Floyd and the protests that erupted in our local communities and around the world in June 2020. We started as a small group of concerned citizens meeting weekly over Zoom to develop values and policy recommendations to help focus and unite the already incredible work of local organizations and grassroots movements. Over the summer of 2020, our member base expanded and our leadership team grew from one person to five talented and caring individuals who are whole-heartedly invested in uniting and growing our community.
