The Beginning

Community Rights PDX was formed with the idea of restoring local democracy. CR-PDX had its founding meeting on January 24, 2012.


We the people of Portland are exercising our inherent rights: to encourage the uplifting of our human condition, to ensure that the air and water are clean and that the Cascadian bioregion flourishes.


Our mission is to reclaim from corporations the Constitutional rights of people. We exercise our right of local self-government to protect the health, welfare, and dignity of our citizens, our commons, and our future generations.
