Racial Equity In Oregon

Instructor Name: 
Kristin Teigen
Course Description: 

This Capstone partners with the Community Alliance of Tenants, Taking Ownership PDX and the Urban League. Students will learn the history of BIPOC communities in Oregon while working with our partners to fight racism, white supremacy and to create a different future for Oregon. Students in this course will learn how to write grants, work directly with organizations centering BIPOC homeowners and tenants and, if they choose, use their own skills and talents to support these organizations. All of this work can very easily be translated to working professionally in a nonprofit organization! A wide variety of project opportunities exist -- everything from scheduled shifts to projects that can be conducted on your own time and schedule.

Project Description: 

Students can choose their projects from a variety of options with the community partner. There are projects that can be completed individually and on one's own schedule, directly at the community partner's office, or in groups. They are all flexible!
