Black lives matter. Black lives are worthy, beloved, and needed.

We offer this message in the hope of continuing calls for action and acknowledging that we all have a substantial amount of work to do.

This moment—and all moments—calls on Portlanders to stand up and denounce white supremacy, systemic injustice, and racial oppression. Beyond words, it’s our actions that will ultimately shape our region’s next chapter and how we reflect on this period.

The Portland Water Bureau stands with Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and employees and community members alike, and we're committed to eradicating systemic racial inequality through our policies, practices, and culture.

We're here to listen, learn, act, and commit to meaningful change. Thank you for joining us.
