Portland Community Leaders Demand Accountability Following Normandale Park Shooting
PORTLAND, OR (February 24, 2022) – A hate-motivated mass shooting. A mayor refusing to acknowledge or act on the increase in targeted white supremacist violence. A police department whose inconsistent approach shows clear bias. Elected officials failing to ensure the safety of our Portland community and their civil rights. A resulting disinformation campaign by right-wing extremists. Broken public trust and a community in trauma
Hear from long-time Portland Civil Right Leaders who’ve fought these battles on both the legal and legislative fronts as they demand accountability and action in the wake of these tragic events. The city must not set a precedent of silence in the face of an increase in violent hate crimes that have targeted Portland.
