Membership Votes to Join Petition for Portland to Exit the Joint Terrorism Task Force

The NAACP Portland Branch General Membership voted today to join the ACLU of Oregon’s petition for Portland to “End Cooperation with the FBI’s Terrorism Task Force.” Portland formally rejoined the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in 2015. The petition has been signed by over two dozen Portland organizations. The JTTF has been used to target Black Lives Matter activists, and most recently made news for labeling black activists as “black identity extremists.”
