Event Details

We know you share our concern about the livability on our city streets, sidewalks, public transportation and park areas. We have each encountered countless examples of rude, unsavory, and even threatening behaviors walking around downtown Portland. It’s become enough of an issue that many businesses are concerned about their viability, and it increasingly affects Portland’s reputation with locals, tourists, visiting businesses and others.

The Downtown Public Safety Advisory Committee (DPSAC) asked us to work toward solutions. We believe that working together we can effect positive changes to make Portland a safe, comfortable place for everyone who shares our public spaces. It’s time to stand together and make Portland better! What are we doing and how can you help?

Please come to our Portland Civility Summit, a presentation and panel discussion that will discuss the problem, show potential solutions and allow you to help, if you can. 

We would really love to have you join us.

We promote civic values of mutual respect, personal responsibility, compassion, and adherence to the rule of law. We model these community values through our words and actions towards others. Upholding our civic values positively impacts individual esteem, community livability, economic and civic vitality, fostering an environment where crime and the fear of crime are diminished. Safety and enjoyment of our parks, sidewalks, public transportation and other public spaces depends on our shared civic responsibility to deter unacceptable behavior and promote positive community standards.

Civility Improves Livability for All.
