A fairness hearing will be held on February 18th to determine if the settlement regarding excessive use of force by officers against those with mental health issues between Portland and the Department of Justice is fair, adequate, and reasonable.
Please join us before the hearing begins and call for the judge to reject the settlement to trigger renegotiation. We may not be able to stay for testimony but we can still make our voices known.
