Policing in our Nation and Community
Online via ZOOM
Racism and Police Policies have fueled the Black Lives Matter Movement and the call for Police Reform. Each day the national news continues to remind us of the injustices and inequities by law enforcement. How does this impact our community? People in our community have had varied lived experiences with our local police as shared so clearly at the last City Council meeting. Please join us on our ONLINE Monthly Community meeting for an update on the Brady investigation (West Linn officer) and discussion/action on Police reform (8 Can’t Wait).
Please be sure to register online here.
In addition, there are several steps that you can take to reduce your chances of exposure and to protect others:
Stay home if you are sick.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
Clean and disinfect surfaces that are often touched.

Car Rally to support Black Lives Matter. July 19th from 3:30-5pm.
We are excited to offer everyone in our community the opportunity to show support for Black Lives Matter. We know that many of you have been unable to participate in events due to the pandemic so this is especially for you! Everyone will stay in their cars, we’ll broadcast speakers and then we’ll begin the rally / procession through town. Our route and details will be shared later. For now start thinking about how you’ll decorate your car!
Route and starting point TBD.
