On Saturday the 19th I photographed and partook in a rally held in solidarity with Charlottesville. What happened there was an atrocity and hate speech and violent actions against those that are oppressed in this country will not be tolerated by myself and should not be tolerated by anyone else. We came together for the Eclipse Hate rally and had a very peaceful protest with extremely minimal police presence. It was a success in many ways and every protest leaves my heart full knowing so many other in this city that I love are willing to fight for those taken advantage of.
We can do better as a society, and we must strive every day to be better.
Thank you Portland's Resistance for making this happen and doing yet another fantastic job bringing the community together.
