Portland NAACP president resigns following abuse allegations
Rev. E.D. Mondainé has announced his immediate resignation as president of the Portland NAACP chapter.
Mondainé gave his resignation Monday night, according to a statement from the national NAACP.
People, including members of Portland’s local chapter, were calling to Mondainé to resign after allegations of sexual abuse were reported by the Portland Mercury.
“The NAACP is firmly opposed to all forms of abuse, assault, harassment, or discrimination,” the NAACP said in its statement. “Such behavior has no place in the Association, regardless of whether these instances occurred in previous or current administrations.”
The national organization said it is investigating whether any organizational bylaws were broken by Mondainé and said it will take “additional action” if necessary.
