BBPDX members know that addressing the housing and homelessness crisis is essential to the future success of our city and businesses. With an issue of this scale and complexity, it can be difficult to know how we, as businesses, can engage in solutions. In partnership with New Seasons Market and TerraMai PDX, BBPDX hosted an event to connect ou members and business leaders with change makers working on the front lines to ensure safe, stable and affordable housing for all.
Our members had an opportunity to learn from community leaders, provide input on advocacy plans, and walk away with a clearer sense of the concrete options for civic engagement. The challenges our city faces call for a new approach to engagement that is collaborative and advances the outcomes that will benefit not only our businesses, but the community as a whole.
