Oregon Grapevine: Teressa Raiford, Founder of "Don't Shoot Portland"

Barbara Dellenback speaks with Teressa Raiford, the founder and executive director of Don’t Shoot Portland. The organization is a black-led, community driven non profit in Portland, Oregon which advocates for accountability to create social change in the spaces of human rights and racial justice.

The conversation touches on issues around demilitarizing and defunding the police, and how white people can support communities of color, and art and activism.

Barbara Dellenback returned to KLCC in December 2017 after pursuing other radio gigs and fundraising for community benefit organizations. She's host of the KLCC podcast The Oregon Grapevine. You can hear her on the radio hosting Weekend Edition, Morning Edition, and All Things Considered.
