Portland prides itself on being a national leader in sustainability. True sustainability requires all those who participate in a society to be invested and involved. A sustainable community requires equal access to services, information, and resources. Presently, a measurable disparity of allocation exists in Portland, as seen in documents like the Urban League’s “State of Black Oregon.” Building on the February 2012 Sustainability for All event hosted by the Sustainability Leaders Network, this dialog series addresses the area of social sustainability that overlaps and intersects with race.
