About Ann Curry-Stevens

Ann Curry-Stevens has been the Principle Investigator in a research partnership with the Coalition of Communities of Color since 2008. This partnership led to the release of a report, “Communities of Color in Multnomah County: An Unsettling Profile” in 2010 that details deep racial disparities between Whites and communities of color across 28 institutions and systems. Following have been reports on six separate communities of color, again detailing the disparities – this time, focusing on each community. The depth and breadth of disparities is alarming to White Portlanders though of little surprise for communities of color. This work has catalyzed awareness, support for reforms and real action. Improved living and working conditions have yet, however, to materialize. Ann is on faculty with Portland State University’s School of Social Work where she leads the school’s teaching in community social work and advances anti-oppressive practice.
