Portland Neighborhood Bill of Rights

Community Rights PDX intends to place a ballot initiative before Portland voters as soon as 2016. The proposed initiative would become part of Portland’s municipal code or charter, not merely a nonbinding resolution. As a construct, it’s useful to think of its relationship to Portlanders as analogous to that of the bills of rights in our state and federal constitutions to Oregonians and Americans, respectively. We invite YOUR feedback, input, and suggestions. What do YOU want your community to look like? To learn more about the Community Rights movement and “rights-based” municipal lawmaking, especially about Article #7 — the essential ingredient shared by all “rights-based” ordinances enacted thus far in over 200 municipalities — please visit the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund website and/or email Kenny.
