The affordable housing situation in the Portland area has reached a crisis point. Low income seniors, along with families and individuals are losing their homes to foreclosures, rent increases or gentrification.

Join Elders in Action and local affordable housing advocates to explore the mechanics, funding and substance of affordable housing issues. The sessions will include insights from housing advocates, a trip to Salem for a Lobby Day and an Historic Portland Discrimination Tour.  If you’re passionate about affordable housing in the Portland area and want to get involved in advocacy, this training is for you! To register, or for more information, please contact JoAnn Herrigel at 503-595-7530 or by email.
