If you’ve lived in this region for more than a few years, you’ve probably heard of OPAL, or at least felt the impacts of our work. Our members have extended transfer times on Portland’s transit system, expanded free transit access for students, secured huge changes in housing policy, won new programs and policies from local and regional decision-makers, and organized thousands to take the streets to demand justice for our communities. We’ve won millions of dollars in systemic changes for low income people and people of color who are often denied investments.
Now, there’s a new way to show your support for OPAL’s movement-building, environmental justice-winning work. We’re in the Willamette Week Give Guide, and we need you to help spread the word!
Will you take a second to tell your community why you support OPAL?
If you’ve made any investments in OPAL this year, we’re thrilled to have your support. At OPAL, we ask our donors to do more than give, because we are a grassroots, movement organization. We hope everyone makes a gift if they are able, and continues to bring more people into the movement. We also ask you to share our message of hope and people-powered victory! Recruit your friends, family, and everyone you know to advance environmental justice with an investment in OPAL. Please share this big news with your community. If you haven’t made a gift this year, the Give!Guide is a great place to make it happen. Everyone who donates $10 or more gets access to hundreds of dollars in incentives, and on certain days you might win a major prize just for contributing. Learn more here.
