About

With a commitment to creativity, technology and social change, Open Signal makes media production possible for the Portland community. 

2021 Open Signal Activity Report



Launched in January 2017, Open Signal builds upon the legacy of Portland Community Media (PCM), an organization that empowered thousands of Portlanders to access video and television technology during its 35-year history. 

Our primary support comes from a grant agreement with the Mt. Hood Cable Regulatory Commission, in partnership with the City of Portland Office for Community Technology. Additional support comes from local foundations, businesses and other government entities.

Open Signal is committed to equity.

At Open Signal, we actively center communities who identify as: Black, Indigenous, and people of color; people living with dis/abilities; English language learners; people who are low income and our nonprofit partners who align with these efforts. We believe that when we keep the voices of those with lived experience of oppression
 centered in conversations about social change, the results benefit everyone.

Additionally, our funding specifically supports communities who have been historically underserved and underrepresented in media.

We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, clients, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors and other community members.

These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services.
