Don't Shoot Portland was founded in August of 2014, after Michael Brown was fatally shot by a member of the Ferguson, MO Police Department. Their mission is to function as community advocates, engaging in and organizing community dialogue, and participating in non-violent direct actions in order to bring attention to issues as they relate to race, poverty, police accountability, and violence. They are a political entity without the politics, bringing the power straight back to the people.
