First Fridays Communities of Color and Allies Network's goal is to create a safe space that fosters friendships and networks for people of color, social justice allies, and equity workers in the local area. CCAN was started by local community folks of color interested in bringing together people in a relaxed social atmosphere to support one another. We want to celebrate your successes and introduce new folks to our community.
CCAN is proudly sponsored each month by a different partner agency of the Equity and Community Consortium (ECC). All are welcome regardless of race, color, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, age, veteran status, or abilities. The Division of Equity and Inclusion at the University of Oregon is proud to be a partner of these events.
