On Nov. 8, Portland Community Reinvestment Initiative held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Beatrice Morrow-Cannady Building, a mixed-use commercial and residential building that will provide 80 residential homes prioritized for residents displaced from North and Northeast Portland and for community-serving commercial retail space. The building is part of PCRI's Pathway 1000 displacement mitigation initiative, which aims to develop 1,000 new affordable housing homes through the next decade and reclaim the historic heart and soul of Portland's African American community.
