Join Commissioner Hardesty and community advocates for a rally followed by the Portland City Council vote to withdraw Portland from the Joint Terrorism Task Force. Let's pack City Hall!

Former Mayor & Police Chief Tom Potter pulled Portland out of the JTTF in 2005 due to concerns about the lack of oversight and transparency in this secretive agreement. Now it's time to withdraw once again. As the ACLU of Oregon states:

«Now, under a president who targets people based on their religion (Muslims), national origin (immigrants), and political beliefs (protesters, Black Lives Matter), it is more important than ever to stop participating in the federal government's dragnet surveillance and spy program.

The FBI and ICE, the biggest players in the Joint Terrorism Task Force, regularly engage in profiling and surveillance that is prohibited under Oregon law. Portland Police officers simply cannot comply with Oregon law while also operating as deputized JTTF agents. Furthermore, these officers operate without local oversight, as neither their supervisors, the city attorney, nor the mayor have the security clearance needed to monitor their work.»

ASL Interpretation will be provided.

See you at City Hall!
