About Don’t Shoot Portland (from their website):
Since 2014, we have seen a rising of activists, family members and concerned citizens across the country coming together in the name of community outreach in an effort to create solutions for the current issues our world faces today. Connecting through grassroots events have helped many to shape tools for accessing a voice in community outreach with political power and influence, these including non-violent direct action and protest.
Our regional and demographic relativity to the experiences in our community have forced us to unite as activists and social advocates for youth, families and vulnerable community members. Our organizational work and activism, including direct community education workshops, support the outreach of our continued advocacy as first respondents and has helped community members contribute through direct engagement and legislative value.
Maria Garcia, President of Don’t Shoot Portland, and Teressa Raiford, Founder and Activist Leader of Don’t Shoot Portland, will be speaking at The Vault Theater on Sunday, September 17th.
