Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson , who promoted the resolution, also spoke to council.

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.
