#Black Lives Matter Community Fundraiser And Sign Making Event!!! says
Don't Shoot Portland is Oregon's most active #BlackLivesMatter Movement!!! Organizers and Allies have been on the front line of International protests since August of 2014 Supporting the Protestors in #Ferguson and Beyond.

Several news articles have covered our local movement and the fight against systematic racism and police brutality and deadly force. It is time to broaden and share our movement and the structure and outreach of the #DontShootPDX organizational goals in support of #BlackLivesMatter.
It's our understanding that we are MAKING A DIFFERENCE!! We can make an even bigger IMPACT with your Support!!!

On August 9th 2014 at approximately 1pm #MichaelBrown was murdered in #Ferguson,MO by former officer Darren Wilson. Since the #FergusonUprising which was executed against the Ferguson police department in response to #MikeBrowns murder by Youth in Ferguson, we have supported the movement to keep the front line youth inspired and have utilized the movement to build and connect issues around excessive force, police brutality and accountability here in Oregon!

#BlackLivesMatter has given our country the cohesive stretch needed to build a blueprint for communicating and directly connecting to leaders around the country who are organizing with and for protestors to bridge direct action and political change....

#DontShootPDX is a Community Action Plan and we will continue our mission to #Educate and #Organize. Blacks and All Oregonians need a broader Understanding of our State Sanctioned Discrimination and we believe that is a first step in building "Direct Change."
