ABOUT US

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. Our work is a continuation of the struggle of those who came before us, who for generations have bled, cried, and died in pursuit of a future free of injustice and oppression.

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.

As Portland’s Resistance, our mission is to organize direct action and policy demands to bring about the just and equitable future that we all deserve.

Our organization emerged as a community response to the 2016 election of Donald Trump. We aim to be a beacon of light in the face of rising white nationalism, oppressive government actions, and social inequality. Our work is a continuation of the struggle of those who came before us, who for generations have bled, cried, and died in pursuit of a future free of injustice and oppression.

In the months following the aftermath of the Trump Presidency, protests created an environment for collective healing and mutual support, and hundreds of people, like yourself, signed up to get involved with Portland’s Resistance and oppose the destructive policies of Donald Trump.

 

Since our founding our organizing presence has skyrocketed, including a Facebook page with 20,000 followers, marches involving thousands of people, led community forums and Resistance Talks, provided emotional support and mentorship to youth activists at Portland Public Schools, facilitated virtual town halls to engage our supporters with important updates and worthwhile perspectives, organized multiple happy hour and other activist social events.

We empower people to become civically active and to build the momentum of organizations aligned with our social justice values.
