Let's Go!!


Action Alert, through Thursday, August 3

The NAACP Portland Branch urgently needs you to contact the Mayor and City Council. Portland City Council has scheduled a hearing on the Department of Justice Settlement Agreement amendments for Thursday August 3, 3:10. More info, context and contact information is on the NAACP Portland facebook page or you can download it here, but, suffice to say - these amendments eliminate the role of community voice and oversight of the Portland Police and were developed in secret between the City, the Department of Justice, and the Portland Police Union. It is critical that we rally as a community to resist this action.

There are three action items:

  1. Email or call city council
  2. Share widely
  3. Come to the City Council meeting on Thursday August 3 and sign up to speak. Remarks are limited to 3 minutes per speaker so plan to ensure you convey your key message.

We try to keep the KBOO PRC resources up-to-date. However, with the volume of events we find, the most up-to-date versions of our collection of events are on https://pdxactivist.org/ and/or our facebook page, Portland Resistance Calendar

We are not affiliated with the folks who create and maintain pdxactivist.org (though some are KBOO volunteers) - we just love their calendar and its ease of use.

As always, many thanks to Ismoon who uses her librarian powers for good (and finds the vast majority of these events), and to Joe Frazier who consistantly supplies great photos.
