The Equity Action Team (EAT) launched in February 2018, and is recruiting new members.
July 3rd, 2018 the FAN Board unanimously approved the following:
Friendly Area Neighbors Equity Resolution: The Friendly Area Neighborhood Association is committed to the human right of all to be free from discrimination. Discrimination against people on the basis of their national origin, race or ethnicity, religion, immigration status, language of origin, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation or identity, socioeconomic status, housing status, or disability, should simply not be tolerated. The number of hate crimes and bias incidents reported in Eugene has been increasing and no doubt many go unreported. FAN's Equity Action Team will work with residents and local institutions (schools, churches, businesses) to foster and sustain a neighborhood environment that is diverse, inclusive, safe, and welcoming; encourage the implementation of practices, projects, and events that help prevent such harmful incidents; and, effectively respond to hate crimes and bias incidents when they occur.
Contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can help to stop hate from spreading in our neighborhood. There are things we all can do.
Please share this message with your communities. We should all know what to do to report hate and bias incidents.
If you are interested in becoming involved with the Equity Action Team or you can’t attend the picnic and would like to request a yard sign, email us at email@example.com.
