In the face of rising homelessness rates, Portland has turned to cruel policies that ignore the root causes of unsheltered homelessness and threaten unhoused residents' rights.

Portland has forcibly displaced unhoused residents over the past several months with "encampment sweeps."

We're demanding public records to learn more about Portland's policies, plans, and enforcement practices.
