Portland Community Safety Research

This page is the hub for materials I’ve produced to assist communities pushing for racial & environmental justice in and around Portland, Oregon. I pursue this work as a way of helping underrepresented communities show the impact of discriminatory practices, government violence, chemical weapons, and other systemic inequality on their lives.

If you would like to learn more about the use of chemical weapons in Portland since 2020, visit the research collective at https://www.chemicalweaponsresearch.com/

The below components are in-progress projects – please contact me before using any of these for outreach or research as I am “working-in-public” in the spirit of Open Notebook Science and some items are not properly contextualized as a final product would be.
