The Portage Community Rights Group is working to adopt a home rule form of county governmen, which secures for all, our rights to participate in local democratic government.

They blieve that all political power is inherent in the people, that government is instituted for their equal protection and benefit and that we the people may create a county government that is healthy, safe and sustainable for us and for our families. State government enacts laws that give preference to corporate activities over our human rights; that corporations headquartered outside our community obtain permits from the state government to engage in activities without our permission.
