A representative from Oregon's Criminal Justice Commission will be coming to Unite Oregon on November 1 at 6 pm to present on the impact of HB 2355 (the End Profiling Law), which Unite Oregon was instrumental in helping pass. The first report was recently released and deals with drug conviction data. The report has found that racial disparities for drug convictions have fallen significantly in the short time the law has passed! Please join us in the discussion about this report and our ongoing and future criminal justice work.
