    Portland African American Leadership Forum (PAALF) People’s Plan Press & Community Launch - RSVP

    Please register to attend our PAALF People’s Plan release.

    The PAALF People’s Plan serves as a powerful tool for research, organizing, and implementation. By viewing the community as the drivers of change, this project engaged over 400 African Americans on their experience living in Portland. Empowering the Black community to assert their right to actively shape the city we live in. While traditional planning engagement models often intimidate community members through complex, technical language and processes; the PAALF People’s Plan engaged the community on our terms, ensuring that the solutions are informed by the people they affect.

    7 Year Keaton Otis Memorial

    In place of the monthly vigil, we will be holding the 7 year memorial for Keaton Otis at Maranatha church May 12, 2017 at 6 pm.

    Please come to remember and honor Keaton, his father Fred Bryant, and recommit ourselves to justice for all victims of police violence in our community.

    Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police over five years ago, May 12, 2010. The police admitted they stopped him for "looking like a gangster." They shot him 23 times after tazing him while he sat in the driver's seat. Later police said Keaton had a gun, but have yet to produce it.

    Keaton's father Fred Bryant held a monthly vigil on the 12th of every month since his son's murder on the spot where Keaton's life was taken. Fred Bryant did this for over three years, fighting for justice for his son, every single month in the rain, the dark, the heat, the snow. Fred Bryant passed away October 29, 2013.

    His family and community have committed to continuing the vigils every month on the 12th, until justice is achieved for Keaton, for Fred, for our whole community.
