Medic Donation Drive

28 Jul 2020 6:00 PM | 107ist Admin (Administrator)

Recent BLM marches & protests have been met with violence by local police and federal officers. On June 30th, Portland United Against Hate sent a letter to the Mayor to condemn police brutality and a list of demands for City Council. The 107ist is proud to be a signer on the letter and to be a member of the PUAH coalition. 

Our volunteers have also been helping to support PUAH by distributing information during marches and protests about the Report Hate program as well as passing out water, earplugs, and helping medics attending to those injured during the protest. You may have noticed that the No Pity Van has been in different parts of Portland area throughout the marches and protests. 

In June, the 107ist ran a Donation Drive to provide medic supplies for Rosehip Medic Collective. Those supplies have been used and there is a large demand for additional supplies so we are asking our members and our community to aid in providing more medic supplies to those helping protesters.
