CHANGING SOCIETY'S PERCEPTIONS OF WHAT AND WHO IS CONSIDERED VALUABLE
GROUND SCORE ASSOCIATION
Ground Score Association (GSA) is an association of informal recyclers, waste pickers, canners, dumpster divers, and other environmental workers who create and fill low-barrier waste management jobs in Portland, Oregon. Ground Score is collectively-organized and radically inclusive, prioritizing work opportunities for those facing work and housing insecurity. Ground Score seeks to build a more environmentally and socially aware community, while also changing society’s perceptions of what and who is considered valuable.
