The Commission, based out of Portland Community College’s Cascade Campus, is made up of local residents, business owners, and educational institutions and government agencies such as PCC, Jefferson High School, POIC, the Police Bureau, and TriMet, among others.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
