Tod Sloan reads from Rebecca Solnit's "Hope In The Dark", here's just a snippet:

"Causes and effects assumes history marches forward, but history is not an army. It is a crab scuttling sideways, a drip of soft water wearing away stone, an earthquake breaking centuries of tension. Sometimes one person inspires a movement, or her words do decades later. Sometimes a few passionate people change the world, sometimes they start a mass movement and millions do. Sometimes those millions are stirred by the same outrage or same ideal, and change comes upon us like a change of weather.

HRC Chair Criticizes Effectiveness of Police and Community Relations Committee

program: 
News In Depth
program date: 
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.
