Oregon Justice Resource Center

The Oregon Justice Resource Centerwas founded in 2011 by Bobbin Singh and Erin McKee. Our goal is to promote civil rights and improve legal representation for communities that have often been underserved in the past: people living in poverty and people of color among them. We work in collaboration with like-minded organizations to maximize our reach to serve underrepresented populations, to train future public interest lawyers, and to educate our community on issues related to civil rights and civil liberties. Integrative advocacy is our model. This strategy includes focused direct legal services, public awareness and education campaigns, strategic partnerships, and coordinating our legal and advocacy areas to promote criminal justice reform.

Don’t Shoot Portland

Our organizational work and activism, including direct community education workshops, support the outreach of our continued advocacy as first respondents and has helped community members contribute through direct engagement and legislative value. There are a vast amount of policy based assets influenced and being harnessed in our strategic building of relationships and networks used toward the shift in culture and systemic discrimination. Activists from the front line need to be encouraged to continue frank and honest conversations about our connection with Ferguson and race in American and its influence within politics.
