On this special Membership Drive edition of the KBOO Evening News:

Multiple wildfires continue to burn in the Portland metro and surrounding areas;

The city of Louisville, Kentucky has agreed to a settlement in the police killing of Breonna Taylor;

And, a whistleblower complaint accuses ICE facilities of medical neglect and unnecessarily high rates of hysterectomies.

Note from the News Director: At the beginning of this program, we incorrectly identified the number of homes and structures impacted by recent wildfires. The fire has impacted one million acres, not one million homes, as we incorrectly stated. Up to date information on your wildfire risk can be found online at wildfire.oregon.gov. Thank you for supporting KBOO and stay safe.
