About Us

We need meaningful election reform that fosters greater diversity, both in those who run for office and the policies taken up by our representatives. We are a diverse group of advocates that represents tens of thousands of Portlanders urging the Portland City Council to pass Open and Accountable Elections reform. Read our open letter to the Council here.

Our coalition believes in:

  1. Putting voters at the center of our democracy by reducing the power of wealthy, special interests and giving ordinary Portlanders a bigger say in the political process.
  2. Elections where our candidates reflect the geographic, racial, and economic diversity of our community
  3. Encouraging candidates to spend more time with voters and constituents of all backgrounds.
  4. Encouraging Portlanders from underrepresented communities to participate and have a voice in our democracy, as donors and otherwise.
