Forum on Police Oversight and Police Reform

The killing of George Floyd has led to the largest protests the U.S. has seen since the 1960s. It has also set off calls for police reform to address brutality, racial disparities, and greater accountability for misconduct. There have been calls to defund the police. But what does that mean? 

Please join the Citizen Review Committee (CRC) and local community leaders for a multi-faceted discussion on police oversight and the future of policing in Portland.

Date:    Monday, July 13th, 2020      
Time:   5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
