From Ferguson to Portland: Race and Police Accountability

On November 1, 2014 Pastor Robert White, president of Clergy United in St. Louis, MO spoke in Portland as part of a Race and Police Accountability Forum. Pastor White has been a major leader in the struggle for justice for Michael Brown, the unarmed African American teenager killed by Ferguson police in August 2014. White's distress at the response of Missouri police to the protests there is balanced by his optimism to make change, which he in part attributes to the solidarity work he witnessed visiting Portland.

The Albina Ministerial Alliance (AMA) Coalition for Justice and Police Reform organized the forum, the second half of which was a community update on the US Department of Justice lawsuit against the Portland Police for their excessive use of force. Members of the AMA Coalition's steering committee explain the background of the suit, the then-current status and historical background of police shootings of African Americans and killing of people with mental health issues.

This show was produced by Dan Handelman and taped by Chris Fuzell of Six-Ten Visuals, with assistance from PC Peri and April Adams. Streaming made possible by Albina Ministerial Coalition for Justice and Police Reform.
