Episode 35: Disproportionate

Updated: Jul 20, 2020

Every state has had marching in the streets. It may feel overwhelming at times, but it feels equally promising that change is inevitable. Today we’ll be telling the story of Aaron Campbell, a young, black, unarmed man that was shot in the back and killed by Portland Police. How lack of training and communication cost him his life. How the officer fought to be put back on the force. And how that same officer claimed there was never another option. Additionally, Alisha will walk us through some of the statistics surrounding police brutality, why the Black Lives Matter movement should matter to everyone, and what you can do to help keep it moving forward.
