We are here to put Portland’s people in charge of making our planning and growth management smarter and more comprehensive.
A city is change.
We are a coalition of inspired people and organizations who focus our collective energies into midwifing Portland’s growth into a sustainable, equitable, livable city: a city where the edges are as desirable and accessible as the center; a city whose youth are encouraged and welcomed to be political actors; a city with room to flourish and room for all.
Our coalition is not focused around money or political careerism, but around directing the city forward, not about backroom deals, but about transparent political processes.
We aim to connect the leaders and innovators of Portland’s past with our future leaders and innovators.
We want to enable people to innovate: people often have the best ideas for their own places in the city of change, but are stalled by bureaucracy.
We are committed to building a community for all ages that is both anxious and equipped to work for change.
Our platform is progressive: we want to eliminate houselessness, decrease the wage gap, improve the schools, fix our crumbling and crowded transportation system, stop displacement, end police brutality, meaningfully decrease carbon emissions, and more.
We will do this not from the top down but from the ground up, involving the many active groups and leaders of the city.
We work together on our shared vision, seeking to positively influence not only our city, but also our region, our state, and
WHEN WE MEET
