1000 Friends of Oregon


To work with Oregonians to enhance our quality of life by building livable urban and rural communities, protecting family farms and forests and conserving natural areas.

Bottom Line for Portland

With Anti-Displacement PDX, 1000 Friends helped convene 40 organizations to focus on systemic housing issues. 1000 Friends’ expertise led Portland to adopt 11 anti-displacement housing policies into the city’s 20-year
comprehensive plan. 

“True livability requires abundant, affordable and diverse housing, with great parks and accessible transit. It shouldn’t take a big paycheck to live in a vibrant, walkable neighborhood. 1000 Friends of Oregon makes our communities better for everyone.” —Eli Spevak, Orange Splot LLC
