What is the rhythm of our safety? 

This question is at the heart of Unit Souzou’s newest project, RHYTHM: Walking to the Heartbeat of our Community  which explores pedestrian safety in East Portland. 

Over the Summer of 2021, Unit Souzou is inviting community members to share their stories about walking, living, working and residing in East Portland. With the rise of Anti-Asian violence, COVID-19 restrictions relaxing, and historic disinvestment in East Portland, safety in public is urgent and multilayered. We are interested in documenting this unique time and share how our communities are imagining their safety as a result of their experiences over the past year.

Great News!
The Office of Community & Civic Life has great news to share and an opportunity for community groups. Civic Life has consolidated and moved into the Portland Building downtown. The recent Portland Building renovations included desks and décor that facilitates a more holistic work environment for both City staff and members of the community meeting them in their offices. This has meant that Civic Life’s office furniture and supplies from City Hall are no longer needed and can be donated to communities through an equitable and fair process that identifies those in need and those prepared to receive furnishing—while supplies last!*
