No on 105 Campaign Launch:

NAACP Helping to Protect Anti-Racial Profiling Law

 

PORTLAND — The local NAACP State-Area Conference is teaming up with Oregonians United Against Profiling to help launch the new No on 105 campaign.

The campaign launches on Saturday, Sept. 15, the official start of Hispanic Heritage Month.

NAACP of the Corvallis area, NAACP of Eugene & Springfield, NAACP of Portland and NAACP of Salem & Keizer all oppose Measure 105.

Measure 105 would throw out Oregon’s anti-racial profiling law that prohibits police from targeting people based solely on the color of their skin, their accent, or their perceived immigration status.

“The effort to throw out our 31-year-old anti-profiling law is part of a troubling wave of anti-immigrant sentiment,” said NAACP Portland Branch President E.D. Mondainé. “It’s similar to the type of treatment that African American communities have historically experienced at the hands of law enforcement and other government officials.”
