The Oregon Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence supports our member programs with robust anti-oppression, equity and inclusion programming. This includes training, technical assistance, resource sharing, events, conversations and short-term workgroups. We also host the following ongoing workgroups; anyone concerned with racial equity in the DV/SA advocacy field in Oregon is invited to contact us for more information regarding meeting times and membership.

Communities of Color Task Force (CCTF) >>

The purpose of CCTF is to generate community awareness, response and commitment – through prevention, education, advocacy, and leadership – to all domestic and sexual violence survivors of color throughout the state of Oregon, regardless of citizenship or legal status.

Aspiring White Allies Oregon (AWAO) >>

The vision of AWAO is racial equity, safety and justice for survivors, those who work to support survivors, and ultimately for all people. Allyship means listening to, believing, partnering with, and upholding the voices and experiences of marginalized communities.

Queer Caucus >>

The queer caucus will gather LGBTQIA advocates across Oregon for regular meetings, peer support, and collaborative projects to further our work.
