In five years, most homes inside Portland's city center will be out of reach for most Portland families. This leaves many families in Portland with no opportunity to become owners close to jobs, schools, public parks and the social and financial centers of the city. This is the stunning conclusion that Portland Housing Center and EcoNorthwest draw from analysis of current real estate and economic trends. What does this mean for our growing city? Is this outcome inevitable? How can we learn from our history of inequality to ensure that we develop policies and planning tools to change the tide, and keep Portland affordable and welcoming to the next generation? Join Dr. Lisa Bates, professor of urban studies at Portland State University and Lorelei Juntunen, partner a the economic consulting firm EcoNorthwest, for a look at how we got here – and new ideas about how to move forward.

We Call This Home: Wealth, Home Ownership, and Race  is our yearlong series of conversations focused on one of the toughest challenges facing our growing city – How do we ensure that the decisions we make as a growing city reflect both the wisdom we've gained through our shared history of inequality, and also the visions we share for a safe, abundant, and affordable place for all to live?

We Call This Home is presented by Portland Housing Center, Agora Center for Journalism at the University of Oregon, City Club of Portland, EcoNorthwest, Oregon Humanities, and North Star Civic Foundation, with generous support from JP Morgan Chase.
