Getting There Together
About Our Coalition
The Portland metropolitan region is an incredible place to live. But we also know that our region is a place of tremendous disparities in wealth, health, education, jobs, and access to services.
When we talk about building livable communities, we must mean “livable” for all — inclusive of all ages, abilities, races, incomes, and backgrounds. We envision a region in which everyone can live, work, play, pray, and thrive. It’s a region of communities where all of our neighbors have the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of our success, and where we’re united in tackling our challenges — together.
