Oregon lawmakers approved a bill Wednesday that would limit the use of military surplus items by local law enforcement agencies.

  

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.
