Fighting for affordable & accessible higher education for all Oregonians since 1975.

Join us for the 18th Annual Oregon Students of Color Conference at Western Oregon University, November 16th – 18th!

The Oregon Students of Color Conference provides a safe, inclusive, welcoming space for students of color, which includes queer and trans students of color and allies to express their voices and experiences. We are focused on education around social and political inequalities for students of color that includes a queer justice lens to help establish ways to continue advocacy and progress. Students will interact with community organizations and hear from keynote speakers who have created real change in society. The conference will provide great networking opportunities with hundreds of students of color, queer and trans students of color, and allies from the Pacific Northwest!
