As the global uprising for Black Lives continues, Don’t Shoot Portland presents Stop Killing Us: A Black Lives Still Matter multimedia installation hosted at HOLDING Contemporary. Don’t Shoot Portland will bring past protest art out of storage from City of Portland Archives & Records Management to complete the exhibit.
Don’t Shoot Portland is a Community Action Plan. The organization was founded in 2016 following the exoneration of Black Lives Matter organizer and activist Teressa Raiford. Don’t Shoot Portland has fought for social change in Oregon and has solidified the establishment of a grassroots movement for racial equality, social justice and political accountability. The key to the sustainability as a group is art, education, and civic participation.
