1000 Friends of Oregon works to build livable urban and rural communities, protect family farms and forests, and conserve natural areas. Our Portland for Everyone program advocates for public policies that provide abundant, diverse and affordable housing for all Portlanders.
Bottom Line for Portland
Portland’s land use and housing policies affect every resident and must include those whose housing needs are unmet. In 2017, 1000 Friends presented to 42 neighborhood and community organizations, met with 1300 Portlanders and prepared 65 people to share feedback with decision-makers.
“1000 Friends is an extraordinary leader for critical policy work in Portland and across Oregon to promote both environmentally sound land use and real, affordable housing options. We are proud to partner with them!”
