MACG has Housing Research Action Teams in Multnomah and Clackamas counties researching and acting on creative solutions to the region’s housing crisis.  Focuses currently include state-level tenant protections, countering NIMBYism, and Safe Overnight Shelter outreach and technical assistance. 

Immigrant Rights

MACG has two research action teams focused on Immigrant Rights, one in Washington County and one in Multnomah County.  They are currently both focused on supporting The Equal Access to Roads Act which would expand eligibility for a standard driver’s license to all Oregon residents by returning the standard driver’s license to a pre-2008 set of application requirements.

We Build Leaders

"Being a MACG leader gave me the confidence to do this advocacy to make my community a safer and more just place.   I never saw myself as someone who could do something like this, but now I do, and it’s because of MACG."
