Sit/Lie Unconstitutional! Cause for Celebration? Well...Not Really...

A judge has ruled the Sit/Lie unconstitutional but Police Chief Rosie Sizer released a memo stating that all the judge ruled was that Portland should just use disorderly conduct instead of Sit/Lie. That is not what the judge ruled and her vague memo creates NO meaningful distinction between the Sit/Lie and disorderly conduct.

Hear members of the Civic Action Group at Sisters of the Road discuss the impacts of Sizer's interpretation, and how the community can get involved.
