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. 

Climate Change & Environmental Justice

The MACG Climate Change and Environmental Justice Research Action Team is developing a campaign to take on polluting industries that often impact the most vulnerable people in our communities.

Immigrant Rights

MACG has two research action teams focused on immigrant rights, one in Washington County and one in Multnomah County.  

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."

Metropolitan Alliance for Common Good is everyday people taking action together for the common good.

We develop the diverse voices of our community, building relationships across religion, race class, and neighborhood lines.

Then we unite these new community leaders to build power to make the positive changes we want to see in our region.
