The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and the Office of Equity and Human Rights (OEHR) are partnering on efforts to ensure that the aspiration of the Portland Plan Equity Framework becomes operational in the Portland Comprehensive Plan Update process. The Comprehensive Plan is a key opportunity to make sure that an Equitable Portland, as outlined in the Portland Plan, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Your expertise is essential to that goal.
The monthly Equity Work Group meeting is an opportunity to review materials in the Comprehensive Plan Update draft and to discuss how different policies impact communities of color and how we prioritize eliminating disparities in Portland. Using an equity lens, this group will review the draft and propose further questions to ask and perspectives to consider. Later in the process, the Equity Work Group will be available to review and provide feedback on draft policy, mapping, project lists, and implementation plans.
The Equity Work Group meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Please check the Meetings and Events calendar for the most up to date information, including meeting times and locations.
