Finding Justice for Historical Injustice
The Oregon Remembrance Project (ORP) was founded to help communities with truth and reconciliation projects about rectifying historical injustice. ORP connects historical racism to its present-day legacies in order to inspire contemporary racial justice.
Join ORP in working to reconcile Oregon’s history of racial injustice.
ORP began with a question:
How do you reconcile a lynching?
Reconciliation acknowledges the capacity for justice in all of us, just as it recognizes our capacity for injustice.
We have a responsibility to the history that we inherit. We are not the first, nor the last, group to carry this work. We simply aim to lessen this burden and prepare the way for those who come after us.
