Anti-Displacement PDX Organizer
Callie Riley facilitates the Anti-Displacement PDX Coalition, and is based in our Multnomah County office, though she works remotely. A longtime activist, community organizer, and union organizer, Callie previously served as the Public Policy Director for Unite Oregon's precursor, the Center for Intercultural Organizing, between 2010 and 2014. Since then, she has worked with tenants and houseless individuals to advocate for affordable housing and self-managed encampments; led a program dedicated to cultivating new leaders in land-use and anti-displacement advocacy at 1000 Friends of Oregon; and organized members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 757 around health, safety, and pay issues. She returned to Unite Oregon in 2019 to use these skills and experiences in support of our frontline community organizers, focusing on communications and research. In her spare time, Callie enjoys reading, hiking, and painting her nails flamboyant colors.
