A quick note to let the portland community know an open invitation to (the) Portland Police Address Racial Profiling, in co-junction with the Human Rights Committee, this meeting is open to the public and counting on public input. Come be the voice.
The little I know is that on Thursday 4.2.09 the community meeting is at:
East Portland Community Center
740 SE 106th Ave Portland or 97216
Don't let the word "police meeting" scare ya from attending and being part of the developing concerned citizens regarding racial profiling and how the police are dealing with this subject.
There will be a second meeting on 4.8.09 at
King Elementary School
4906 NE 6th Portland Or 97211
Both Events are scheduled to run from 5:30 - 7:30pm
This is a good way to be involved in the way police use pre-text stops and the development of oversight regarding police and racial profiling, in a community forum.
You can be a voice for joe public..
The Human Rights Committee are encouraging input from the citizens of Portland.
There is some (more) information on this Racial Profiling Meeting in the video from today's Human Rights Meeting which will be available here on PIMC soon, (yet after Thursday meeting)
