PORTLAND, Oregon - "Here for Portland" is a new city-wide awareness campaign launching this week that encourages everyone to put your money where your heart is and support local businesses this holiday season and through the winter months.

In collaboration with the creative teams at North, Travel Portland, Prosper Portland, Downtown Portland and others, Portland Business Alliance is pleased to share this special initiative that calls on all Portlanders to help the Rose City bounce back from the unprecedented economic and pandemic setbacks of 2020.

Today the campaign launched a new video featuring a diverse chorus of Portlanders from across the country, representing the cross-section of creative, innovative and distinct voices that make our city the place we are all proud to call home. The video features people who are a part of the incredibly interwoven fabric of Portland, from small business celebrities, pro athletes, internationally renowned musicians and authors.

All of these Portlanders are adding their voices to a collective call in supporting our local economy this season and being intentional with spending money to support local businesses impacted by the challenges of 2020.
