Don't Shoot Portland protests police brutality on Black Friday

A Portland activist group is protesting police brutality and raising awareness for Portland's homeless and other vulnerable communities on Friday.

Members of Don't Shoot Portland will gather in the Pearl District to honor the 10th anniversary of Jame Chasse's death, which sparked an outcry about police treatment of the mentally ill. Chasse died while in the custody of Portland police.

Don't Shoot Portland will host a "feed-in" with live music and a winter food and clothing drive for needy families, according to the group's Facebook page. The event will begin at Northwest 13th Avenue and Everett Street at 1 p.m.

The event comes after weeks of protests, which began after the presidential election of Donald Trump.
