Why does Portland attract so many social innovators, entrepreneurs, and organizers?

What role is the Jewish community playing in building a better, more inclusive, sustainable Portland? 

Join us on our first Lab out on the west coast  –  just when school lets out and you've got the itch to travel.  

We'll explore Portland with our partner, Tivnu: Building Justice, and meet with other local government, business and non-profit leaders to explore the city through the lens of social innovation.
