ORRA Stands United Against Racial Violence and Injustice
Oregon Refuse & Recycling Association (ORRA) denounces the senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. We know that this moment in history calls for self-reflection and for committing to doing things differently. No person should live in fear—we stand united with all people of color in calling for justice and accountability. To this end, we commit ourselves to doing our own hard and intentional work to be more inclusive, to assessing our own biases, to listening, and to fostering an industry where people of color can thrive.
ORRA will continue this commitment and will offer more opportunities to engage in learning, education and training. We will continue to reach out and listen in the communities that we serve.
