OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon is a 501(c)3 nonprofit located in the unceded territory of Portland, OR. Our work is at the intersection of civil rights, environmental justice, and transportation access and equity. We focus on empowering individuals to actively engage in transportation related changes in the Portland metro region in order to increase accessibility for Black, Indigenous, people of color, youth, low-income, and transit-dependent communities. We have a 14-year legacy of winning victories and growing the movement for environmental justice and a just transition toward an anti-racist, grassroots feminist, regenerative economy.
