Elected officials, community leaders call for peace

Elected officials, community leaders call for peace

We are proud to sign this letter with elected officials and other community leaders to call for an end to the violence in our city

As elected officials and community leaders, we are coming together to condemn the acts of violence in Portland that have occurred as thousands of Oregonians have been peacefully protesting for racial justice and police accountability.

The violence must stop.  

There is no place for white supremacy or vigilantism in Oregon.

All who perpetrate violent crimes must be held equally accountable.

Together, we are committing ourselves to do the hard work that will bring meaningful change for racial justice and police reform.
