Yesterday, the Portland City Council unanimously passed the IPR reform ordinance. The NLG, as part of a broader effort led by the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition, supports the reform.

The NLG will participate as part of a stakeholder group to push for greater independent oversight of the police in the upcoming 90 day review period.
