Our Streets was formed in June 2020 as a grassroots effort to support the local community while promoting the ideals and goals of the Black Lives Matters movement. We address numerous areas of need such as homelessness, food insecurity, environmental injustice, civilian oppression, and youth engagement.
Our mission is to serve the underserved. We encourage growth and unity within our community through resources, gatherings, and education.
Founded by Mitchell “Buchi” Asemota and Mikah Takashige, we have a staff of over 30 paid employees. From leadership to cooks to drivers, our crew represents the diverse Portland community.
Our Streets PDX is a 501(3)c organization.
