Who We Are
OHEA is a people of color led collaborative, organized to center and uplift the wisdom of our communities of color through racial justice informed health equity policies and practices as part of the movement to dismantle white supremacy and shift the imbalance of power.
OHEA is open to organizations who serve constituents facing health inequities in the Tri-County region of Clackamas, Washington and Multnomah counties.
We envision a world where people of color are able to lead fulfilling and healthy lives, however they choose.
POSSIBILITY: We believe what we are fighting for is possible. There is always room for creativity and healing. We will make mistakes, try things over and over again, and we are committed to always learning.
TRUST: We value relationships that are intentional, mutual, and built on trust. We recognize as complex human beings, we are bound to make mistakes with one another and are committed to continue even when challenges are hard and uncomfortable.
COMMUNITY WISDOM: We believe people and their wisdom and expertise on their lives.
