OHEA members are organizations that prioritize and work towards health equity. Organizations can be state and county partners, as well as community based organizations, houses of faith, emerging initiatives, culturally specific groups, health systems, CCO’s, clinics, educational programs or social justice campaigns. This list is not exhaustive, as we are always looking to partner and collaborate with others who are working through a racial justice framework.
In 2019, OHEA has asked all membership organizations to commit to anti-racism principles and practices and develop an accountability plan to ensure movement towards becoming anti-racist.
OHEA members generally pay yearly dues, which could be between $50-$500 depending on the organization's budget. Exempt organizations include OHEA SC organizations, organizations who are culturally specific community based organization, organizations whose membership is over 51% people of color, LGBTQIA2+, and/or disabled community members. If you have questions about whether or not your organization fits these criteria, please email email@example.com.
Our general membership meets four times per year for interactive and collaborative meetings throughout the tri-county region.
OHEA also convenes a Policy Committee made up of OHEA Members and the Steering Committee. This committee, in alignment with OHEA’s mission, believes everyone should have an equal chance to achieve their full health potential and supports a policy agenda that is framed by our values, theory of change and long-term goal of forging progress in health equity for all of Oregon.
