All About Metropolitan Alliance for Common Good

Metropolitan Alliance for Common Good (MACG) is a group of nonpartisan, proactive, everyday citizens dedicated to making the Portland Metro Area a better place for all to live and thrive.  You’ll find us working for change in churches and classrooms, in living rooms and union halls, in City Hall and in Salem.

Health Care GroupFor more than 10 years, MACG has worked to make neighborhoods safer, promote accessible and affordable health care, and increase job opportunities among other issues.

We are a non-profit supported by the dues of our member organizations, individuals and foundations.  We are affiliated with the Industrial Areas Foundation, a coalition of like-minded organizations in cities across the United States, the UK, Germany, Canada and Australia.

At MACG, we believe that by working together we have the power to change our communities for the better.  We do more than just sign petitions and protest.  We take action.
