Coalition of Communities of Color Requests Your Help- Survey
This is a project that aims to understand the everyday realities of communities of color in Clackamas County. This project is a partnership between the Coalition of Communities of Color, Clackamas County, and local community-based organizations. By conducting outreach and learning about community-specific successes and challenges, it is our hope that this research will engender more inclusion and collaboration between communities of color and regional government, policy-makers, and civic leaders and organizations in the county.
The Coalition of Communities of Color will be creating partnerships with community-based stakeholders to co-create the various phases of this research — from initial design, to data collection and analysis, to dissemination of research findings. The Coalition uses a “Research Justice” approach, which means that our methods are entirely community-driven and participatory. We work from the explicit assumption that communities of color are the experts of their own experiences, and have the right to research, the right to know, and the right to be heard.
We are requesting your participation in this survey, as well as your help in disseminating the survey within your networks. You can access the survey here
