The monthly Human Rights Commission meeting in Portland Oregon is documented in this video filmed on 11.4.09.

The first Wednesday of the month the Human Right Commission meet in an "open to the public" meeting and I went to it on 11.4.09 and now have the recent meeting uploaded on-line on Archive.org:

I also spoke a couple minutes during the "public comment" time slot ...bringing to the record my concern regarding the city homeless problem and the new laws that are "in the making" regarding city policies with camping outside and then my concern of the Human Rights aspect of "being homeless" and having your rights violated. I wanted to express to the commission that it was a Human Right issues and for them to be aware of it as we all move forward.
