No American City Has Ever Tried a Climate Justice Tax Like the One Portland Is Launching

"It's long past time for Portland, a city with a history of institutionalized racism, to move aggressively toward equity, Hardesty and others say."

"It's a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). It's also part of a larger political effort to reshape who calls the shots—and who benefits."

The new tax, created by a 2018 ballot initiative city voters passed by an overwhelming margin, is part of a power shift that saw two outsiders—Chloe Eudaly in 2016 and Jo Ann Hardesty in 2018—defeat establishment candidates for seats on the Portland City Council."
