Since May 29th, Portland protesters have demonstrated nightly for Black lives and against police violence. During these demonstrations, local police and federal law enforcement officers have repeatedly engaged in practices that are facing legal challenges. Local movement leaders, ordinary protesters, legal observers, street medics, journalists, and even Oregon’s Attorney General have all filed lawsuits against federal and local law enforcement agencies and officers, as well as the City of Portland and its officials. Many of these suits have been filed with the help of the ACLU of Oregon.
