HOW WE DO IT
We carry out inclusive outreach efforts through a variety of community engagement events with the goal of meeting people who often go unheard, particularly those most vulnerable to environmental hazards and displacement.
This has included annual neighborhood surveys, hosting community forums in multiple languages, and inviting folks to take a “community pledge” in which actions are selected by community members that help them get more connected to resources and community leadership opportunities.
We partner with schools, local community organizations, Portland non-profits, businesses, and city and state bureaus to provide a comprehensive list of projects and initiatives in which residents may get involved.
