Commissioner Carmen Rubio
Our core values as a City include anti-racism and equity. Every Portlander and everyone visiting our city deserves to be welcomed and to feel that they belong. They should encounter a Portland free of bias and hate, where they do not fear for their safety and security.
We are serious about moving faster and more aggressively away from fossil fuels. But today’s decision isn’t enough. As the Planning and Sustainability Commissioner, I am committed to going further.
We are a great country, and a safer country, when we lead with integrity and love. Such leadership demands that we ensure the safety of (at least) those who ensured the safety of our citizens, and of those who will be persecuted because of who they are.
