City Club of Portland's Advocacy program turns research into action by informing decision-makers and the wider public about City Club’s adopted policy positions, and advocating for their implementation. Besides promoting positive change, advocacy committee members develop their policy knowledge and gain experience with a range of advocacy and awareness strategies. The Advocacy Board provides support and oversight for these advocacy committees.
