Good morning, Portland friends and allies!

Our annual May Day rally is fast approaching. We have been meeting regularly to make sure we pull off a successful and meaningful rally, but we need your aid and generosity to cover the cost of holding this event. Our community is clearly excited and eager to see this succeed, and you can be a part of that excitement by supporting this event with your monetary donation and time to share this link with your networks. We believe that our communities united can gather the funds needed to make this rally happen. Thank you!

NE 6th and Halsey
NE 6th and Halsey
Portland, Oregon

Event Information:

Keaton Otis was a young Black man murdered by the Portland police three years ago. The police admitted they stopped him for “looking like a gangster.” His father, Fred Bryant, has held a monthly vigil every month on the 12 since his son’s murder in his struggle for justice for three years, on the spot where Keaton’s life was taken.

Please join that struggle this month and help to spread the word.
