About the event

We have neighbors living unsheltered on our streets, many suffering untreated from mental illness and others seeking escape from their desperate situation through life threatening drugs. Despite hundreds of millions of federal, state, and local taxes available, we seem to be making no progress in solving the problem. People continue to suffer and die, and Portland’s precious quality of life and economic vitality hang in the balance.

This challenge cannot be solved solely by our elected leaders. The forum will feature a panel of six elected leaders representing our West side neighborhoods from all levels of government:

—Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler

—Multnomah County District 1 Commissioner Sharon Meieran,

representing Downtown and W Portland

—Metro President Lynn Peterson

—Oregon House Homeless Committee Chair Maxine Dexter, representing Downtown and most of W Portland

—Oregon Senate Majority Leader Kate Lieber, representing a substantial portion of Downtown and SW Portland

—A member of Oregon’s Congressional Delegation (not yet confirmed)
