History

Nightingale Public Advocacy Collective (NPAC) grew out of the energy of the Occupy Movement, which put a spotlight on the unequal distribution of wealth in our society, and therefore on the unequal distribution of all goods and services available to people. By the time the Occupy encampments closed down, activists had formed alliances with the unhoused and gotten an in-depth education in the problems they face every day. People who had been active in Occupy Eugene began creating new organizations, such as Occupy Medical, the Occupy Eugene Media Group, SLEEPS, Opportunity Village Eugene, Community Supported Shelters, Whoville, and NPAC, to provide both support and general advocacy for the unhoused.
