We're not done! With your support, we can advance a housing justice agenda that affirms housing as a human right, essential to equality and dignity, and indispensable to inclusive and vibrant communities including:


  • Passing a Tenants' Bill of Rights

  • Establishing a Citywide Anti-Displacement Task Force

  • Funding for Universal Eviction Defense

  • Establishing a Tenant Opportunity to Purchase program 

  • Rolling back decades of discriminatory and exclusionary zoning laws to allow all types of housing--ADUs, duplexes, multi-family--in all neighborhoods.

  • Creating an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) financing tool which will allow average Portland homeowners to contribute to our housing inventory

  • Developing incentives for affordability and accessibility for ADUs

  • Supporting development of affordable housing co-ops and Community Land Trusts

  • Full funding for the Rental Services Office

  • Passing the HereTogether ballot measure to fund homeless services


We’re not done!  We are continuing to decrease carbon emissions in transportation and aligning all Housing Bureau and Transportation Bureau endeavors with a climate and racial equity lens.

  • We need a real climate emergency declaration that focuses on equity, transportation, housing, and jobs and is bold enough to address irreversible disruption to our environment.

  • We must reduce carbon emissions by dramatically improving our public transit system and supporting and incentivizing alternative modes of transportation

  • Ensure that the Portland Clean Energy Fund successfully launches next year

  • Continue to fight against all new fossil fuel infrastructure.

  • Deeply invest in electric vehicle infrastructure in order to make EVs a viable alernative for more Portlanders and support the continued conversion of the City fleet, as well as TriMet.


We're not done! We have so many exciting projects and plans ahead of us, all aimed at reducing emissions, making our roadways safer for all users, and creating an equitable transit system for all Portlanders, including:

  • The Greenways Project is the next transportation project that will focus on improving pedestrian and cycling opportunities within neighborhoods while decreasing car traffic volumes and speeds on residential streets

  • Develop innovative transportation demand management measures hand-in-hand with community to keep us moving toward our carbon emissions goals while ensuring equitable outcomes

  • Consider alternatives to sidewalk and street tree management, which is currently the responsibility of adjacent property owner and leads to inequities in our pedestrian infrastructure and urban canopy.

  • Continue working toward Vision Zero safety goals through improved and safer infrastructure

  • Aligning our transportation equity goals with our housing goals so that we’re not displacing vulnerable populations from the central city into areas with inadequate public transit and active transportation infrastructure.

  • Pass the Fix Our Streets Gas Tax


We're not done! These efforts have all been launched and are ongoing:

  • For an excellent overview of our work on Civic Life code change, aimed at addressing the 2016 audit of the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (now Civic Life) and the 30+ year conversation about the lack of diversity in our neighborhood network, click here.


  • I championed the City's 311 initiative which is now in development as a collaborative project between Civic Life and OMF. The City is weak on customer service, we struggle to get information out to the public, and we don't have adequate avenues for engagement and input.

  • Voting is one of of our most fundamental constitutional rights. In 2017 my office and Civic Life lead a non-partisan, content neutral, bilingual GOTV effort in some of Portland's lowest voter turnout precincts. While difficult to measure the impact, we saw higher increase in turnout in the precincts that were canvassed than those that weren't. I believe that the City and County has a responsibility to provide basic information and support language access for communities that face barriers to participating in our democratic process.

  • I was an enthusiastic supporter of the Open & Accountable Elections Program and am now participating in it. I support limiting campaign contributions and getting corporate dollars out of all campaigns.

  • I'm a big believer in local power. Especially in a state like Oregon, with wildly divergent regions and a part-time citizen's legislature, municipalities need to be able to advance regulation that serve the needs of their communities. I've successfully fought back against preemption on regulating the TNC industry and years of effort on the part of housing advocates, myself included, has led to some loosening of state preemptions and stronger tenant protections for all Oregon renters.

  • Government has an obligation to provide reasonable accommodations to people with disabilities and people who need language supports. Every year I've fought for increased funding for accommodations, which is currently left up to individual bureaus, making accommodations inconsistent and hard to access. We need these services to be adequately funded and overseen by a single bureau to ensure consistency across all bureaus.


We're not done!  Chloe's current and ongoing efforts include:

  • Continuing to fund Universal Defense. The vast majority of individuals facing deportation have meritorious cases, but without legal representation, the vast majority of them will be deported.

  • I'm currently fighting for economic relief for undocumented workers during the COVID-19 crisis. These workers pay into our system but cannot access supports like unemployment. It's unconscionable that we would leave these workers, who perform vital work and greatly contribute to our economy, without support.

  • With a growing immigrant population and many underserved communities, it's critical that the City ensures language access for limited English proficiency community members. This vital accommodation needs to be fully funded and very accessible.




We’re not done!  Here’s what we’re working on…

  • Exploring additional options for investment in historically under-served communities

  • Developing anti-displacement initiatives that will add stability for local small businesses

  • Protections for gig economy workers against abuse and misclassification

  • Requiring businesses that serve an essential need (shelter, food, mobility, health, and hygiene) to always provide a cash option

  • Reform of the Arts Tax.  We need to provide relief to families who are working hard just to pay the rent and ask people who make more to contribute more
