How the vision is being used to transform justice in Multnomah County 

Current Phase 

Throughout the fall and winter of 2022, Territory has been facilitating eighteen strategy-building sessions to dive deeper into the opportunities and challenges presented by each core strategy. The strategy-building sessions will be complete by mid-December, which allows for time to review and incorporate feedback through the holiday season and into the beginning of 2023.

County employees, LPSCC member agencies, leadership from Gresham and Portland, several community members, providers, and people with lived experience generously contributed their time and wisdom to help build infrastructure for each core strategy. The sessions identify four key areas:

  1. What work is currently happening?
  2. What gaps exist?
  3. Who else should we talk with?
  4. What other wisdom should we know about?

The core sessions seek to inventory the state of the work while queueing up possible approaches to implementation, including engagement of subject matter experts, governance, and timelines. Before launch, however, the Transforming Justice team will find creative ways to seek the public’s feedback and wisdom by making all content available for review and comment. 

Spring and early Summer 2023 will focus on planning and launching the work in a thoughtful and inclusive way and continuing to inventory work underway.
