An open letter to State Legislatures (OR only)

Please prohibit tear-gassing innocent citizens

13 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

Hi! OPB recently described Rep. Janelle Bynum's desire to enact state law restricting the use of CS gas and tear gas against peaceful protesters. (https://www.opb.org/article/2021/02/04/oregon-looks-at-ban-on-using-tear-gas-against-crowds/) During BLM and reform-the-police protest events in Portland this summer, both Portland Police and the federal stormtroopers inappropriately used tear gas downtown and in suburban neighborhoods. ICE agents continue to use it near a school in Portland's South Waterfront neighborhood. I urge you to join Rep. Bynum and co-sponsor or support her efforts to rein in these local -- and as much as possible, federal -- abuses of innocent citizens. Thank you so much for your help in representing us on this issue.
