The AMA Coalition for Justice and Police Reform is working toward these five
1. A federal investigation by the Justice Department to include criminal and civil rights violations, as well as a federal audit of patterns and practices of the Portland Police Bureau.
2. Strengthening the Independent Police Review Division and the Citizen Review Committee with the goal of adding power to compel testimony.
3. A full review of the Bureau's excessive force and deadly force policies and training with diverse citizen participation for the purpose of making recommendations to change policies and training.
4. The Oregon State Legislature narrowing the language of the State statute for deadly force used by police officers.
5. Establishing a special prosecutor for police excessive force and deadly force cases.

The AMA Coalition for Justice and Police Reform follows these three principles:
--Embrace the five goals.
--Accept the principles of non-violent direct action as enunciated by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
--Work as a team in concert to achieve the goals.


Two Year Memorial for Keaton Otis
Saturday, May 12, 2012 -  2:30 pm to 5:30 pm
4200 NE Martin Luther King Jr Bv, Portland

 Come to the two year memorial, planned by Keaton's father Fred Bryant, to remember and honor Keaton Otis's life.

On May 12, 2010, Portland police stopped, shot and killed 25-year-old Keaton. The initial reason he was stopped was for "looking like a gangster."

This event is a day to bring the community together, to mourn Keaton's loss and to remember him, and others who have been lost to violence.

Please invite others, and help spread the word.
