10 Things YOU Can Do After Joining People For Portland

10 Things YOU Can Do After Joining People For Portland

In just our first five days, we generated 55,000 emails to 36 elected officials! We need your help to keep up the momentum. We have the money to launch, but whether People for Portland continues depends on YOU – the people.

So, what else can you do? We have some suggestions:

  1. JOIN AND TAKE ACTION – Please don’t take action just once. Each time you click, you’ll generate messages to elected officials – and they DO notice. In addition to sending an email through our website, consider sending a personal hand-written note to members of the Portland City Council. Just five seconds of your time can ruin a scared politician’s day!
  2. FOLLOW AND SHARE – We need to show that we are the strong, vocal majority of Portland. Please, show your support by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and Instagram.
  3. DONATE – This is something everyone can do. Whether you have $10,000 or $10 with one zero behind it, your contribution allows us to spread the word and grow our advocacy base, make videos, buy Facebook ads, and make politicians listen. Your donation, no matter how big or small, helps make sure ALL our voices are heard.
  4. TELL YOUR STORY – You only need your cell phone and one minute of your time to upload a video to People for Portland. Tell leaders why Portland needs help!
  5. RECRUIT YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY – Facebook post about us, tweet about us,post on Reddit about us, e-mail your grandma about us; don’t let people do nothing. Get them to sign up on our website, peopleforportland.org, and follow us on our social media platforms.
  6. TELL US WHAT’S GOING ON IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD – The newspapers and television stations can’t cover everything, and we need to see the good, the bad, and the ugly. Email us at [email protected] with anything you think we need to know – no matter how big or small.
  7. WRITE A LETTER TO THE EDITOR – Tell them about your story and why they city needs the people of Portland to join People for Portland.
  8. CALL A LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIAL – Pick one at random, and then ask to speak to them personally. Tell them you’re a Person for Portland – and then tell them what you want to see happen.
  9. CALL YOUR MOM – She loves you and needs to hear from you and probably has no idea what’s going on on the internet ! Get her to join us!
  10. DON’T GIVE UP – Portland is worth the effort. It won’t happen on its own. If you’ve taken all nine steps above – start again at number one. And this time, bring a friend along.

Keep up the good work, Portland. Let’s hold our elected leaders accountable.
