OPAL organizes low-income communities of color in East Portland to advance racial, environmental, and economic justice. Through their Bus Riders Unite initiative, OPAL is putting transit-dependent riders at the decision-making table with TriMet and establishing a more equitable transit system for all Portland Metro area riders. They are fighting back against historic inequality in their communities’ experience, by working at the intersection of transportation, housing, land use, and climate policy.
