Research

We break down complex reform and policy processes to help Portlanders stay informed and understand how they can get involved.


Rose City Reform fact-checks campaign narratives, interviews experts, and conducts in-house research and analysis before we bring you the facts as we understand them. We analyze change from three primary perspectives: context, intent, and behavioral incentives.

Whether you opt for our shorter breakdowns, monthly newsletter, or in-depth guides, we scrub all of our content of unnecessary jargon and try to explain reforms and policies as simply as possible.
