The West Linn Alliance for Inclusive Community (WLAIC) is a volunteer organization focused on promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in West Linn. We work with schools, government, and community to help create a city where all people are welcome. The Alliance strives to stay current on government and school policy and provide public input where we see a need for change.

Over the past several years, the Alliance has sponsored a series of community outreach projects in West Linn with a focus on providing insight and education by bringing speakers and discussion group facilitators to our community. We believe that education and open discussion are essential to raising awareness of bias, prejudice, and discrimination. A calendar of upcoming events can be found in the menu above.

WLAIC engages in partnerships with other groups in West Linn and surrounding communities to identify and address inequity in both government policy and community behaviors. The Alliance is one of the founding members of the Multi-City Equity Summit. The October 2019 Summit was held at Lake Oswego High School and attracted approximately 300 attendees from the West Linn, Lake Oswego, Wilsonville, Tigard, and Tualatin communities.

We rely on an active membership to achieve our goals, and we encourage you to join with us and donate some of your time to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion in West Linn. (Join)
