#DontshootPDX organizers children's march, briefly blocks intersections

Around 200 people marched in the streets of North/Northeast Portland to demand police accountability

Around 200 people met at North Portland's Dawson Park to take part in a march organized by Don't Shoot Portland. The march briefly, blocking intersections along the way, traveled east to NE MLK Jr. Blvd and then back to Dawson Park via N. Vancouver Ave. Don't Shoot Portland organizer Teressa Raiford said before the march that police in riot gear were spotted nearby, though they did not appear during the march.
