Providing thoughtful, sophisticated policy solutions on energy, climate and consumer issues.
The mission of the CUB Policy Center is to provide thoughtful, sophisticated policy resolutions and produce research that makes Oregon a national leader on energy efficiency policy, climate change solutions, renewable resource implementation and consumer awareness while providing educational opportunities to upcoming public interest professionals to share our knowledge and expand our capacities.


CUB is pleased to be partnering with Free Geek to present a series of free workshops on telecommunications issues. Conveniently located at Free Geek in Portland’s Central Eastside Industrial District, our class will include:

  • A tutorial on the language of phone/internet and cable plans
  • How to read and decipher items on your bill (including taxes and fees)
  • How to pursue a complaint when things are not right
  • This class will be interactive with plenty of time for questions and problem-solving your concerns.

    Visit our Events Page for more information, and sign up by calling the Free Geek front desk at 503-232-9350.
