Today, YNPN Portland returns to our core beliefs.
“We believe that our social ills are caused by inequities in access to the basic resources and benefits of a democratic society. These inequities are based on discrimination against various groups by race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and other identities. We also believe that a diverse and powerful social sector can address these inequities.”
Now, more than ever, we must speak out against hate and bigotry, stand up for policies that lift people up, build our community, and band together. YNPN Portland commits to this work, to showing up, and to creating spaces for you to lead.
We want you to know that we value the work you have done for our city and state. YNPN Portland believes in you. We believe in young emerging leaders and we believe in the power of our community.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with your thoughts, feelings and ideas. Together, we’re building a powerful and diverse nonprofit sector.
-The YNPN Portland Board
