The Portland Charter Commission is making crucial decisions this month about proposals for the future of Portland’s form of government and how we elect our City Council. These next few weeks are an important time to make sure your voices are heard! For the past few months, the Charter Commission has listened to Portlanders about the problems they experience with our city government and voting system. Using community input, they have researched potential solutions. The Charter Commission is meeting on March 31, 2022 to vote on the city government and voting system proposals they would like to adopt. If these recommendations move forward, they will end up on the November 2022 ballot. Monday, March 21st at 5 PM, the Coalition of Communities of Color is hosting a virtual BIPOC townhall for community members to learn about how this process impacts communities of color and participate in a Question and Answer session with Charter Commissioners Amira Streeter, Becca Uherbelau, Robin Ye, and Salomé Chimuku.
