Santa Clara Community Organization Diversity and Inclusion Statement:

The Santa Clara community is rich with natural beauty, passionate residents, and a commitment to using our collective diversity as an asset to benefit our present and inform our future. Our community affirms this commitment via this statement in support of diversity and its multiple benefits, those visible, tangible, and otherwise.

No person shall be victimized, marginalized, or discriminated against in our community on the basis of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, (dis)ability, education level, political affiliation, or citizenship status. We support dialogue, discourse, and disagreement in constructive and holistic capacities that further relationships and prosperity for all at the table. We reject hatred, bigotry, and vulgarity in all forms. We support an individual’s right to lead his, her, or their lives without influence from perspectives that foster racial, ethnic, or other bias based outcomes.

If you feel you have been the victim of or witnessed any type of discrimination in our community please report it (https://www.eugene-or.gov/2476/Equity-and-Human-Rights-Contact-Form), and if you aren’t sure, or have concerns about reporting, please contact the Santa Clara Community Hotline—the “SCCO Batphone”—at (458) 209-9990 for confidential assistance.
