HRC Chair Criticizes Effectiveness of Police and Community Relations Committee

News In Depth

Thu, 07/16/2015

Portland Human Rights Commission Chair Chabre Vickers sharply criticized the Police and Community Relations Committee (PCRC) at that group's meeting last night. She suggested a three-month hiatus to redevelop the group so that its meetings achieve more tangible results. The PCRC is a sub-group of the Human Rights Commission and is tasked with guiding the police department in following the guidelines of the US Department of Justice settlement, which had found that the PPB used excessive force against people with mental illness and engaged in racial profiling. The committee includes members of the public and the police department as well as city officials.

Grateful to my guest

My show Disability Awareness has stated to take on new life. I have the privilege to interview guest that are coming from different disabilities, both invisible and apparent. Lately I have been able to speak to researchers with important ground breaking books that are important to the community. This month (June)  I will be interviewing Linda M. Blum who wrote Raising Generation RX: Mothering Kids with Invisible Disabilities in an Age of Inequality. Next month my guest will be Sherry M. Joiner who wrote 'Sherry Goes Sane: Living a Life with Schizo-Affective Disorder'. I want to give a special shout out to Laura Sandow who picks me up and gets me to the KBOO studio on time. Laura is an ongoing guest addressing PTSD brought on by her military service.
