PCUN-LogoPineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United), is Oregon’s union of farmworkers, nursery, and reforestation workers, and the state’s largest Latino organization. PCUN’s fundamental goal is to empower farmworkers to understand and take action against systematic exploitation and all of its effects. To achieve this end, PCUN is involved in community and workplace organizing on many different levels. In 2011 and 2012, PCUN spearheaded the building of the CAPACES Leadership Institute, serving PCUN and its eight sister organizations.

REACH has gained local, state, and national acclaim for innovation and responsiveness to difficult urban issues. Its portfolio of over 1,400 units includes new and renovated plexes, apartment buildings, and mixed-use developments located across the Portland metropolitan area.

Street Roots


streetrootslogonewStreet Roots, which is published biweekly, has been Portland’s flagship publication addressing homelessness and poverty since 1998. Street Roots creates income opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and poverty by producing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for individual and social change. By giving a platform for voices that often go unheard, Street Roots is a vital part of Portland life. When people fall through the cracks, they too often become invisible to the wider population. Street Roots provides a source of income for the homeless and a public forum to have these essential stories told.
