Occupy Portland, Inc.

It’s official. Occupy Portland, a movement opposed to corporations and corporate greed, has incorporated — albeit as a non-profit corporation with the State of Oregon. The move was apparently made by members of the group’s finance committee. Yes, the group has a finance committee.

It’s been explained to me that Occupy PDX needed a way to track donations and expenses. It had explored organizing as a 501(c)(4) charity or even as an LLC, but ultimately, it’s decided to register as a non-profit organization.

Here are the papers the group has filed with the Oregon Secretary of State’s Corporation division.
