right 2 dream too

The Ambassador Project works closely with Right 2 Dream Too, a direct-action project of Right 2 Survive that provides twelve hours of uninterrupted sleep for those without access to shelters or affordable housing. Right 2 Dream Too (R2DToo) works to raise awareness of the importance of being able to sleep undisturbed by threat of violence. R2DToo provides people mental and physical space to address challenges that the houseless and other communities share in the Portland area. For the last five years, R2DToo has provided refuge for 120 people a night in the Old Town/Chinatown district.

R2DToo will lose its current site in April 2017. The Ambassador Program seeks to involve housed and houseless people citywide in securing a new site for Right 2 Dream Too.

Right 2 Dream Too needs the attention of city and county officials to move forward with its location change, where it can continue to offer refuge to over one hundred people daily. If you have words of support, please tell them to:
