Neighborhood Partnerships: Update on the Oregon State Narrative

Map of OregonNeighborhood Partnerships, an organization Public Works has worked closely with in recent years, is spearheading an effort to develop an Oregon narrative. Here’s an excerpt from a recent update Neighborhood Partnerships sent out about its exciting work:

We’ve been working for a while to try to re-train ourselves to communicate in ways that open up dialogue and conversation. So much of today’s political discourse is negative, focused on short term solutions, and wrapped up in telling a story that involves stark contrasts, heroes, and villains.

We would rather remind others and ourselves of the power we have when we try to be our best selves, together. We’re thrilled that our narrative seems to help us do that – create a receptive audience, so we can at least begin the conversations we need to have about our future as a state and a nation.
