Portland is experiencing record-setting gun violence. This is an issue Rep. Reynolds has worked on for years, as a volunteer with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, and as a freshman legislator. In addition to passing laws that (don’t) curb (criminal) gun violence, she wants to look at community-based solutions that focus on prevention and the upstream needs of our young people.
Reps. Reynolds and Dexter will be hosting a virtual Joint Town Hall next weekend (Saturday, Oct. 30 at 10 am) on gun violence in Portland. They’ll be joined by special guests Lakayana Drury (Executive Director of Word is Bond), Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt, City Commissioner Carmen Rubio, and Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese.
You will hear some perspectives from the community and understand how to best move forward on this issue. Register here, or watch it live on Rep. Dexter’s FB page.
