Community Conversations with ONI

Beginning in February 2019, Civic Life, in collaboration with our community partners, invites Portlanders to conversations around civic engagement. Conversations in multiple languages will be hosted by our community partners across Portland in multicultural settings. 

Conversations will center around our city today and the ways communities can help shape the work of City government. The feedback from these conversations will inform the process of revising City Code Chapter 3.96 that defines the work of our bureau.

See below a calendar of the upcoming conversations. 

In the meantime, take a 'Survey of Civic Life' and tell us what civic engagement means to you.

Help us create a roadmap of what communities need to grow and thrive. Hope to see you there!
