Against White Supremacy, Militarism, and False Solutions (OPAL)

In the wake of the violent tragedy on public transit in Portland, Oregon last Friday, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance supports OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon in calling on TriMet to demilitarize transit police, in favor of a community-defined, transit ambassador model which de-escalates crises, protects safety without deadly weapons, and provides resources for riders in need.
