Join the Portland Metro People’s Coalition on January 29, 2022 to explore community-led solutions for changing self-governance in the City of Portland. Our city charter is the constitution of the city, yet many people have no clue what it is. Ongoing Charter Review process presents a unique opportunity to reimagine our democracy through a new Charter. It is at these moments that people’s voices matter most. And it is vital that Portland advance equitable representative and participatory democracy in its new charter. Come learn about this complicated process in a way that uplifts and promotes YOUR ideas and decisions so we can guarantee representation and democratize participation for all Portlanders in this process and in its outcomes.
Topics range from participatory budgeting, to policy juries, to the implementation of a climate justice sub-committee in the charter review process. We’ll also discuss potential changes to the form of government and elections.
We have tentatively planned an outdoor social at the Hawthorne Lucky Labrador Brew Pub from 1:30-3:30. We will confirm this event during the main event.
