Community Safety Listening & Strategy Session 

Eliot Neighborhood 

The City of Portland’s Division of Community Safety and Commissioner JoAnn Hardesty’s Office are holding a Community Safety Listening & Strategy Session at Matt Dishman Community Center on Wednesday, March 30th.  

The Eliot neighborhood, a vibrant area with a rich history, has suffered from the steep increase in gun violence in Portland over the last two years. Come share how you have been impacted by safety issues in your neighborhood and meet other neighbors looking for solutions. 

What is Happening? 

The Community Safety Listening & Strategy Session has three intended outcomes: 

1.               Assemble community members concerned about safety in the neighborhood 

2.               Build a shared understanding of problems impacting community safety, as well as a shared vision 

3.               Identify resources within the community to address problems and build toward the vision 

Why Attend?  

The City of Portland recognizes that the Eliot neighborhood is of vital importance to Black Portlanders who formed a strong community here due to Portland’s racist red-lining policies in the early to mid-1900s. The City also recognizes that this community has experienced multiple layers of displacement and trauma due to policies that destroyed homes and caused rising property costs that forced residents out of the area. This event needs the perspective of long-standing Eliot residents who experienced these events, and the session will not be successful without your voice. AllEliot residents who want to build a safer community are welcome. Broad representation from a diverse group of residents, businesses, and other community organizations is essential to achieving this event’s intended outcomes. 

Get Involved  

Join us at Matt Dishman Community Center on Wednesday, March 30 from 6:00 p.m. -7:30 p.m.  

ASL and Spanish language interpretation will be available.  Email Lisa Freeman ( or Andre Miller ( for more information.
