Surveillance Targets Oregon Racial Justice Activists
by Joseph Santos-Lyons
Today, APANO joined civil rights and labor leaders in calling for an investigation into alleged secret surveillance of Oregonians who use social media including the twitter hashtag #BlackLivesMatter for “threat assessments”. We stand in solidarity with African-American, African and Black communities including the Urban League of Portland in expressing deep alarm at unwarranted racially motivated investigations. We appreciate Attorney General Ellen Rosenbaum’s swift response expressing outrage at these revelations and commitment to a full and transparent audit.
These activities damage trust in our public officials and have broad implications for all Oregonians. We expect to learn from historic transgressions and abuse of power by government and political officials. Our Asian and Pacific Islander, immigrant, social change and many other communities seeking justice have experienced a long legacy of disenfranchisement and the misuse of state power. APANO strives to ensure our society is free from discriminatory profiling and all people have the rights and dignity afforded them by the Constitution.
We urge our members and allies to read our joint letter.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
