Who We Are

Portland Metropolitan Alliance for Common Good covering Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington Counties.

Metropolitan Alliance for Common Good (MACG) is a non-partisan and non-profit alliance of congregations, unions, and community groups in Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington Counties representing over 27,000 people.

The Alliance is driven by the belief that these institutions must be strong because they are the cornerstones of a democratic society who hold the potential to build strong families, healthy communities and a just world.

LeaderTherefore, MACG has three primary goals:

  • Strengthen each member organization; by fostering organizational cultures that are relational, action-oriented and reflective.
  • Develop local leadership to build capacity in our city to take responsibility for solving the problems in our own communities and renew the interest of citizens in public life.
  • Serve as a vehicle for member groups to act in the public arena with sufficient power for the common good.


We organize people power to create a more just metro area. We strive to hold both public and private power holders responsible for their public responsibilities, as well as initiate actions of our own to solve community and economic problems.

MACG was founded on May 23, 2002 by 1,400 delegates, building upon the membership of its predecessor organization, the Portland Organizing Project.
