The LWV of Portland mourns for the men killed and injured, and the two women they were trying to defend, all of whom were victims in a racially driven brutal attack May 26 on Portland’s public transit system. We extend our deepest sympathy to the victims’ families and the survivors.
The League denounces the violence of this attack. We reaffirm the League’s support of equal rights for all and the importance of speaking out against hate and violence.
The League of Women Voters stands for government transparency and civic involvement. Read our volunteer Action Chair’s testimony to the Portland City Council about these issues.
We are proud that we just received a grant from the Multnomah Bar Foundation to improve our communications, including this website.
Please tell us how to improve this site. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
