Dear Community Members,

The Portland Charter Commission has been making progress in charter review. In our October email update we shared information about the Charter Commission's progress and the November virtual Community Listening Sessions, which are happening in just a few days! We are emailing you today to remind you to register online!

Virtual Community Listening Sessions You are invited to the Portland Charter Commission virtual Community Listening Sessions — we hope you join us!

Our November Community Listening Sessions are part 1 of a two-part series of listening sessions. The upcoming sessions are an opportunity for community members to learn more about charter review and the issues currently being researched by the Charter Commission (form of government & city council elections) and join breakout rooms to have a community discussion on Portlanders’ lived experiences with City government. Part II of our listening sessions will take place in January 2022 and focus on options for reforming our government and elections.

Community members are invited to attend either of the Part I Community Listening Sessions. The sessions will have the same content just offered on different days to accommodate more community members.

  • Saturday, November 13th from 12-2pm—learn more & register here
  • Tuesday, November 16th from 6-8pm— learn more & register here

We hope you can make our listening session! Can't make it? We will have a recording on the educational presentation and a short survey with the questions asked in the breakout groups available on our website!

If you have any questions, please email CharterReview@portlandoregon.gov or call 503-865- 6818.
