Environmental Justice Program

Environmental affects everyone especially folks in urbanized spaces. We have been using various engagement practices to capture the experience of how it has affected black families in the City of Portland. We find it important that families feel safe in the spaces they occupy. They should not have to worry about the water, soil and air quality around them.

Community Safety Project/Program

In 2021, we did a survey and you the community stated that your top concern at this time is safety. We find it important for black families to feel safe as people, in places and things(homes). We have a series of engagement projects going on to see how community define safety and how to make us be and feel more safe.
