The Portland NAACP chapter, under new dynamic leadership, has added a Black Liberation & Social Justice committee, which I chair.
Under the leadership of Sharon Gary-Smith, the chapter has scrapped the traditionally conservative approach to community service in favor of activist-led political committees.
Other focuses include Food Justice, Housing, Environmental Justice, Economic Development, and more. The chapter is always looking for motivated volunteers.
After failing to meet any of his first term campaign promises, Ted Wheeler promised to stop gassing citizens, promised to re-imagine policing, promised citizens access to the police union contract bargaining table, broke all of those promises, refused to defund the police, undermined activists, illegally donated to his own re-election campaign.
Let's send him packing.
