Advancing Latino Equity in Oregon

Latino Equity

Advancing Latino Equity in Oregon

This research action project (RAP) includes scholars who want to link their research to create positive social change in marginalized Latino Oregon communities. We will use our research in Latino Oregon communities to improve the social conditions marginalized Latinos face in Oregon. We will discuss the history of Latino growth in the state and conduct studies analyzing the structural barriers and opportunities Latinos face in Oregon. These issues may include, but are not limited to: access to educational opportunities; increasing awareness of public health issues; supporting the political and financial capital that exists within the Latino community; and examining equity issues facing the Latino community in Oregon. Research will provide historical, political, social, cultural, and economic understandings of the marginalization of Latinos in Oregon. Recommendations and strategies for improving the social conditions of marginalized Latinos will be linked to policy, community development, and social service interventions.
