What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?

Would love to get connected to peers in the area! Have been missing a professional community since most of my team works in DC and Chicago. Also really hoping to find a mentor to connect with with similar values with regards to work and personal goals.

What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?

Would love to learn more about the affordable housing work happening in Portland right now and how to support (through my work or outside of it!). Also would love to support fresh food access work: community gardens, farmers markets, double up food bucks programming, etc.
