Communities of color are the fastest growing communities in Oregon, more than doubling in size - 21.5 percent of the total population - in the last two decades. But racial disparity continues to run deep despite this change. Many communities of color experience poverty rates two to three times higher than white Oregonians. Although the futue of Oregon's prosperity depends on fair opportunities and economic stabilty for all Oregonians, state lawmakers continue to fall short in dealing with these racial and economic gaps.
