(Portland, OR) -- Leaders of Portland's Black community are putting pressure on City Council to take action and solve the rise in gun violence over the last month. Homicides are at a 30-year high and shootings were triple what they were a year ago. The group says they don't want the Gun Violence Reduction Team to be reinstated. They want the city to find new ways to solve the problems using policies that are racially just. They criticized the council for eliminating the gun violence reduction team as a reaction to the police killing of George Floyd without having anything to replace it.
