Description

This Summer #DontShootPDX kicks off a hosted series of community focused bystander intervention conversations and direct engagement platforms. This months outreach is to Communities of Color and those of Latino Ancestry. All are welcome though these voices are the ones being centered in this space due to the specific context and necessary experience based subject matter.

There's a history of solidarity amongst the black and brown communities. Our history and struggles have roots in Americas culture of racism and political social terrorism. The struggles are real though our solidarity needs a renewal and revival of engagement due to the racist violence happening currently in Oregon and across the nation. Let's come together in this series which will continue every 2nd Tuesday at #ART

Each month Bystander Intervention Dialogues and community building panels will inspire and encourage innovative and direct action for those seeking outreach strategies and solutions to ending racial terror and violence. Building Community Matters!


Dont Shoot Portland - In August 2014 we agreed to take political action and organize at Dawson Park to be in solidarity with the growing response from Ferguson, MO #MikeBrown
