We want to hear from you!

The City of Portland and Prosper Portland, in partnership with BACC, NAACP and Urban League, are hosting an online listening session to hear from Black & African American businesses owners.

This session is open to the public and intended for Black & African American business owners.


The State of Oregon and Multnomah County will define the public health requirements for reopening businesses, and the City of Portland wants to support businesses in the implementation of those requirements . We want to hear from you!

The listening sessions have been scheduled based on the Reopening Framework Phases defined by Governor Kate Brown. The timing of these sessions does not indicate the timing of reopening, which will be driven by the health and safety parameters determined at the state level.
