How do I get involved?


What is this campaign?

Through this campaign, we will win access to a $15 minimum wage for 30,000 workers in Portland over the next 2 years! We will do this by uniting and coordinating unions, workers organizations, faith institutions, and community organizations through contract campaigns, new organizing, and voluntary commitments. The Portland Campaign for $15 is building a cross sector movement for economic justice that includes the leadership of unions, queer and trans people of color, houseless people, immigrant workers, small businesses, and the progressive faith community.
