Purpose

Let's approach this issue on all fronts.

The DOJ will be our audience for voicing our concerns about police use of excessive force. Occupy has become a target of police aggression and downright assaults, so let's come together to have our voices heard!

Officials from the U.S. Department of Justice will be in town later this month to seek community input on Portland police use of force as they continue a federal civil rights inquiry to determine if the police bureau engages in a pattern or practice of excessive force.

Other details
If anyone has comments or concerns but are unable to attend the town hall meeting this month, they're encouraged to contact the federal investigators at community.portland@usdoj.gov or 1-877-218-5228.

Anyone can also call the U.S. Attorney's local civil rights hotline at either 503-471-5577 or reach it by email at usaor.civilrights@usdoj.gov.
