While facts are limited, what we do know is that one individual is dead at the hands of another on the streets of Portland. This violence is unacceptable, and I condemn it in absolute terms. Unfortunately, this violence was predicted by many but preventable. (Thread)
As gun violence, political violence, and police violence continue to plague our community we must come together to condemn such action and heal our community through not just nonviolent action and condemnation of attacks, but also through real transformative progress in our city.
The unrest will not end until there is a long due reckoning with the polarization, racism, and inaction that has festered for too long. We cannot gas, beat, and arrest our way to healing. Now is the time to roll up our sleeves, and make this city one that works for all.
It is clear that regardless of the circumstances, more violence is possible. I fear that Black and Brown Portlanders could bear the brunt of this violence. We must look out for our neighbors and keep each other safe.
I am committed to leading our city in the hard work required for restorative healing and transformative change. It will not be easy, but it is long overdue. Portland is resilient and strong. We will get through this together, as a community. - Sarah Iannarone
