Farmer for Portland 2020

Goal thermometer

Help us reshape Portland! Your contribution helps us reframe the rental market to create affordable housing, redefine our infrastructure for clean, efficient and safe transportation, and renew our commitment to ease the burden of homelessness.


I am participating in Portland's Open and Accountable Elections Program (link below), which strives to limit the influence of money in politics by providing matching funds to donations up to 50$ and limiting the maximum donations allowable to 250$ from an individual. Help me reach 250 Portland donors to qualify for the program by donating at least 10$ today!


But why should I donate to a candidate at all?


Candidates provide the social service of acting as focal points for our discussions about how we want our community and nation to work. Much like a church provides spiritual support and guidance, or a library provides educational materials and activities, candidates provide political ideas and, hopefully, practical actions we can take as a society. And, just like churches or libraries, the discussion candidates provide has costs, and so donations help candidates perform in their job as candidates – holding events or townhalls, or maintaining a website or newsletter. If you think a candidate's voice adds value to our community's discussion, you should donate (as you can) to help ensure that discussion continues.


If you believe my plan to make housing affordable, make transportation efficient, and ease the burden of homelessness is worth discussing, please donate. Together, we can lead Portland and the nation into a just future for everyone!
