No hate in our schools - David Douglas School Board meeting (Don't Shoot Portland)
David Douglas High School Conference Room

Please attend the school board meeting Thursday, June 1st at 7pm. A motion to censure Bryce Anderson is on the agenda. This is the board's opportunity to formally & publicly condemn member Anderson's hateful, anti-immigrant remarks and limit his participation in board proceedings.

Please consider:

  1. Bringing testimony and/or signage supporting the motion (item 9 on the agenda) to formally censure member Anderson.
  2. Bringing testimony and/or signage demanding member Anderson's resignation.
  3. Bringing testimony and/or signage denouncing hate and systemic racism in DDSD schools.

Without strong turnout, this motion will fail. But, without strong community turnout, the inclusion resolution would have also failed (at the initial reading, the board was 1-6 against the resolution, after testimony, the inclusion resolution passed 4-3). There is power in testimony and power in numbers. Bring your testimony, your signage and your commitment to stand up against bigotry. Please spread the word. See you Thursday!

Stolen Angels art exhibition - Opening Reception
Williamson Knight

Williamson | Knight is pleased to present Stolen Angels, a Black Lives Matter exhibit by Don’t Shoot Portland. The show will open on August 3, 2017 and run through August 19, 2017. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, August 3, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, as part of the Pearl District’s First Thursday. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday, 12:00 to 5:00 pm. There will also be an Exhibition Demonstration at Williamson | Knight at 1:00 pm on August 10, the anniversary of the murder of Larnell Bruce who was run over by white supremacists.

Stolen Angels is a space where the families of children murdered by the police and the violence of white supremacy can remember, represent, and depict their family members' memories with love, honor, and positivity. This is a space to facilitate the decriminalization of the bodies and images of their children.

In the media, these stolen lives are portrayed as criminal threats that in turn justify the theft of life, where bodies are systematically dehumanized. Their families are rarely given a public-facing opportunity to visually remember their children in a manner that does not cause further trauma.

Since the first inauguration of former President Barack Obama, our America has shown its true colors. In the era of a Trump administration we must use ART to communicate our humanity. Let us share our history, pain, and courage. #BlackLivesMatter

Don’s Shoot Portland is a Community Action Plan. The organization was founded in 2016 following the exoneration of Black Lives Matter protestor and activist Teressa Raiford. Organizing and promoting solidarity movements in support of Police Accountability uprisings in Florida, Ferguson, Baltimore, NYC, California and several other countless cities. Don’t Shoot Portland has fought for social change in Oregon and has solidified the establishment of a grassroots movement for racial equality, social justice and politcal accountability. The key to our sustainability as a group is Education, the Arts and History we use the three to bridge and build political power. www.dontshootportland.com

Williamson | Knight is a collaboration between Iris Williamson and John Knight.

Whose Streets Film Screening
Portland Mennonite Church

Join us September 29 for the season opener of the Peace of the City Film Series: WHOSE STREETS, a documentary about the Ferguson uprising. Co-sponsored by Don't Shoot Portland, this screening is free and open to the public.

WHOSE STREETS When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis County. Grief, long-standing tension and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. In the days that follow, artists, musicians, teachers and freedom fighters stand on the front lines to demand justice. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military-grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new wave of resistance: a battle not for civil rights, but for the right to live.

Communities of Color Unite: A Year of Fighting White Supremacy
Artists Repertory Theatre, 1515 SW Morrison

To continue our series of bystander intervention workshops, our next comes at a particularly frightening milestone and realization - it has been one year of fighting white supremacy under the Trump administration, and we need to be informed and united more than ever. In the past 12 months, these workshops have enlightened and strengthened community members and truly made an impact. There are discriminatory crimes and hateful attacks in the headlines everyday, and we must remain dedicated to the fight for equality.

This is an event that will hold especially potent and strong material. We urge you to attend this politically charged workshop as we face the crucial issues that stand ahead in our country.

Testimonials from past Bystander Intervention workshops:
"I'm still overwhelmed by the emotion shared in that room and Teressa's enormous generosity, energy and commitment. I'm going to a neighborhood cookout right now and cannot shift my headspace and don't want to. The neighbors will hear about my afternoon. Everyone, no matter their "woke" level, was changed. And everyone will now have a conscious choice(s) to make every day on whether to intervene or not. No excuses."

"I was deeply moved by the workshops' personal and emotional sharing. I appreciate Teressa's activism on behalf of POC in Portland, including children. I plan to become a supporter of Don't Shoot Portland. As a recent arrival to Portland, I am trying to find out what is going on here! It's much worse than I might have expected and yet, it seems, the country in general is not a safe place for many people... Gratitude for those who speak and share."

Don't Shoot Portland's Hughes Memorial Community Service and Feed In
Hughes Memorial United Methodist Church, 111 NE Failing

On the 3rd Saturday of every month the members of Hughes Memorial Church host a community meal. This year we have been joining in to help! Not everyone has access to food regularly and this is one way to help distribute and collect resources.

We have collaborated with Hughes Memorial to host an ongoing clothing and hospitality kits donation drop point while using Saturday's for neighborhood supported prep and distribution of warm meals!! On 3rd Saturdays we take to the streets #NVDA to deliver food to the houseless community. In APRIL we began gardening so that we can continue to distribute fresh food to those in need!! Join Us!!

Please join us on December 16th at 10:00 am to volunteer, donate, learn more!
