Oregon falls short in achieving equity for children of color and immigrant children

Oregonís future depends on the success of all of Oregonís children. However, the Annie E. Casey Foundationís new report, ď2017 Race for Results: Building a Path to Opportunity for All Children,Ē shows that children of color and those living in immigrant families in Oregon face significant obstacles on the pathway to opportunity.

With Oregonís history of racial exclusion and mistreatment of people of color magnified by the recent uptick in racially-motivated hate crimes, the Race for Results report sheds light on how the stateís inequitable past affects child well-being.
