Progressive business group expands, launches nonprofit

Progressive business group Business for a Better Portland expands, launches nonprofit Friends of BBPDX

“A relatively new progressive business group, Business for a Better Portland, continued its rapid growth this week with the launch of a nonprofit.

Founded in 2017, the association has swelled to around 300 members. The nonprofit, Friends of Business for a Better Portland, will allow both members and people outside the business community to donate to the organization. The funding will support events aimed at educating business leaders about key policy issues: transportation, housing, and equitable economic development. While the association stays away from direct lobbying, its members convene workgroups after some of the events and throw their weight behind political causes.”
