City policies have a direct impact on the economic and social well-being of Portlanders -- and on communities of color in particular. As Portland grapples with population growth, increased construction activity, and challenges in our transportation system, our next mayor must be prepared with strategies to address the disparities in jobs, housing, and transportation that exist for Portland’s communities of color.
At this town hall-style debate, NAMC-Oregon, along with a panel of minority-owned business representatives and advocates, will ask candidates to speak to how they would address the challenges and others, if elected.
