This summer, Civic Life is helping neighbors host parties in their neighborhoods! These parties are a great way to get to know your neighbors, learn about cool stuff in your area, build up your community, and celebrate in a safe environment. You can throw a party for all of your friends’ pets, a marathon of all your favorite Michelle Yeoh movies, a vehement vegetarian chili cookoff, an all-ability dance party, and just about any other kind of party you want!

Safe, green, outdoor spaces are important to building safe, healthy communities. They give us places to rest and relax and connect to nature to get fresh air and sunshine. They provide free spaces for us to play sports, have a meal, bring pets, make music, get some exercise, and just hang out. Closing neighborhood streets for block parties allows us to build our own safe outdoor spaces.

Celebrations in the City of Portland will take place between August 1 and August 14. If you have any questions, call 3-1-1 or email 311@PortlandOregon.govRegistration is open from June 6 to July 1 and is free!

If you are looking to host an event with Night out for Safety and LiberationNational Night Out, or another national organization, please register through those organizations.

Public Safety Meeting to be Held at Dishman – Wednesday, March 30th at 6pm

On Wednesday, March 30th at 6pm, the City is hosting a public safety discussion at Matt Dishman Community center on NE Knott street. The public is invited to attend

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 (Lisa.Freeman@portlandoregon.gov) or Andre Miller (Andre.Miller@portlandoregon.gov) for more information.
