A Code for All Portlanders: Writing Racial, Disability, and Social Justice in the Office of Community and Civic Life, presents Committee 3.96 recommendations, the process for community engagement, and an understanding of how these changes might impact the work of Civic Life.

Self Enhancement Inc. (SEI), 3920 N Kerby Ave, Portland, 97227
(doors open at 5:00pm, meeting will end promptly at 8:00pm)
Food, refreshments, and childcare will be provided.

On November 14th, 2019, Commissioner Chloe Eudaly will present a Resolution to authorize a three-year extension for Neighborhood District Coalition Office contracts and to convene a multi-bureau work group to conduct a policy review of cross-referenced responsibilities for public involvement (click here to see a timeline of the work proposed in the Resolution). Bureaus within the work group will work together to address their own public involvement practices so all Portlanders can be equitably serviced citywide. The meeting will also be an opportunity for Portlanders to learn about the work of Committee 3.96.  For details from Civic Life, click here.
