City Council denounces white supremacists groups
The Portland City Council passed a resolution Thursday that condemns white supremacists and alt-right hate groups.
The hearing started with testimony from a senior policy advisor to Mayor Ted Wheeler.
Nicole Grant spoke about how the resolution came to be and her own experiences with prejudice and hate as a black woman in Portland.
"This resolution is not about white people. It's about all people with a dedicated focus on those that are targeted as a result of their skin color," Grant said during opening remarks.
All of the commissioners offices worked together to draft the resolution.
