Get Involved

It will take all of us to make sure that Portland chooses abundant, diverse, and affordable housing for ALL residents!

SIGN UP: Want to get our email newsletter, invite Portland for Everyone to present to your organization, or maybe even testify before City Council? Check out our list of options to get involved, and choose the one(s) that sound fun to you. We will follow up &/or get in touch when the time is right.

BECOME A MEMBER: One great way to support Portland for Everyone’s work is to become a member of 1000 Friends of Oregon (our parent organization!) by giving the gift of support by donating $35 per year or more. (Just make sure to check the “Portland for Everyone” box)!

WRITE: Use your voice! One of the most critical actions you can take is to help inform the local dialogue on the need for more and more affordable housing options. We’ve put together a short guide to help you craft your own op-ed or Letter to the Editor. We’ve also compiled some recent examples and inspiration on our Resources for Advocates page.

GET INVOLVED IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD: Want to learn about what’s going on near your home, or to help influence the decisions that local Neighborhood Associations are making on tons of issues, including housing & zoning? Then show up, attend a meeting, or even run for a seat on the board! We need to make sure that Portlanders with a wide range of experiences and backgrounds are represented at every level of civic engagement.
