The LWV of Portland mourns for the men killed and injured in a brutal attack Friday, on Portland’s public transit system. We extend our deepest sympathy to their families. The men were trying to defend two young women who appeared to be Muslim.

The League denounces the violence of this act. We reaffirm the League’s support of equal rights for all and the importance of speaking out against hate and violence.
