OCJ issued Policy Grants in 2021-22 that funded five organizations. A primary goal of these grants was to help smaller, culturally-specific organizations with existing relationships in their communities build capacity and explore state-level policy and advocacy projects. We allocated Community and Consumer grants to ten organizations in the same year. All fifteen organizations were invited to participate, with the following organizations comprising our inaugural policy cohort: Bienestar, Centro Cultural, Coalition of Communities of Color, Latino Community Association, NAYA, Oregon Health Equity Alliance, PCUN, Pro-Choice Oregon, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, Reimagine Oregon Project / Urban League of Portland, Rogue Action Center, suma, and Unite Oregon. The policy cohort engaged grantees by fostering an active learning community, providing advocacy training and assistance within a collaborative space, and exploring policy solutions for legislative action.
