Portland’s Resistance (PR) emerged as a community response to the November 2016 election of Donald Trump. We aim to be a beacon of light in the face of rising white nationalism, hate crimes, and social inequality. 

There are numerous ways for you to get involved. You can show up to our weekly meetings, come to events, or send us a message. If you are unable to physically join us you can sign up for our newsletter, follow us on social media, or join our organizers Facebook group.

We are a grassroots organization that depends entirely on your generous donations to survive. We make no money from this organization but your gift will help us with supplies, meeting space, outreach and more!  

Who We Are

In order to survive a Trump Presidency, the rise of white nationalism, and widening income inequality, there needs to be a strong resistance.


Our resistance envisions a future where communities are empowered to create new solutions to present day problems, using direct action, political advocacy, and community development to inspire new people to get involved in politics and to create a united platform for progressive causes.  Portland has an opportunity to become a beacon of light, modeling to the world what a nonviolent resistance movement can truly look like.

Our movement will endure, gather, and thrive.  Each act of oppression spurs us to recommit our hands and our hearts.  We work, we grow, we change — we resist!
