Program Goals

  1. Strengthen individual collaboration skills

  2. Better understand people with different perspectives and experiences relating to economic, social, and political issues

  3. Build relationships across differences and decrease “othering” 

  4. Address local economic challenges

  5. Strengthen communities’ cohesion and resilience

  6. Reduce acceptance of inter-group violence

Program Schedule

All in-person gatherings will feature a workshop and other activities such as small-group discussions, visits with community leaders, a shared meal, and/or a walking tour.  


Uniters will be reimbursed for transportation expenses, in addition to earning a $1,000 fellowship stipend for their participation.

Targeted Violence Prevention Projects

In each county, Uniters will work with a community organization to design and implement a project that addresses an economic challenge in Oregon. Projects might focus on issues such as trauma healing and mental health support, racial divisions and/or tensions, immigrant/ non-immigrant tensions or services, economic and housing issues, and political divisions and/or tensions.

A $10K budget will support each project.
