Welcome to Taking Ownership PDX, LLC., a small-but-mighty community collective of contractors, realtors, neighbors, and businesses brought together by Portland musician, activist Randal Wyatt. Together we renovate and revive Black-owned homes that have requested our help, with an emphasis on enabling Black homeowners to age in place, generate wealth and simultaneously deter predatory investors and realtors to deflect the gentrification process. While nothing can undo the decades of harm imposed upon Portland's Black community via deliberate historical redlining, gentrification and systemic racism, Taking Ownership is turning the tide with a commitment to impactful grassroots change in support of the Black home owners of our city.
Taking Ownership is dedicated to raising funds and awareness with a team of passionate activists aided by volunteers hitting the streets and making a significant difference in the lives of our Black neighbors. We are always looking for volunteers, and we will put your skills to work, whether it be by fixing a toilet, fundraising, repairing a roof, or putting out the call for resources - Taking Ownership PDX has a need for your time and talent. Together, we are a strong and powerful presence offering support to the Black community that helped shape Portland, this wonderful city we call home.

To make justice across borders a reality, Justice in Motion formed a Defender Network of human rights lawyers and nonprofit organizations throughout Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Defenders partner with U.S. lawyers on concrete legal cases for migrants, as well as advocacy and community education projects across the region.
Now, we work to defend the rights of thousands of migrants from across the region each year -- from parents separated from their children at the U.S. border, migrant workers exploited by U.S. employers, to children seeking safety from harm. https://www.justiceinmotion.org/
Environmental Defense Fund
Environmental Defense Fund's mission is to preserve the natural systems on which all life depends.
Guided by science and economics, we find practical and lasting solutions to the most serious environmental problems.
What distinguishes Environmental Defense Fund is the combination of what we protect and how we protect it.
We work to solve the most critical environmental problems facing the planet. This has drawn us to areas that span the biosphere: climate, oceans, ecosystemsand health. Since these topics are intertwined, our solutions take a multidisciplinary approach. We work in concert with other organizations — as well as with business, government and communities — and avoid duplicating work already being done effectively by others.
