Protests for August 11


Tuesday afternoon, the Kid-Centered March for Black Lives drew out a few dozen families for speeches, marching, and chants. In the evening, mutual aid group The Witches held a self-care event at Laurelhurst Park that was followed by a march to the East Multnomah County Sheriffs Office / SE Precinct on East Burnside. Protesters stood outside the building, chanting and giving speeches. The night ended uneventfully with no arrests or munitions used.
