From February 2019 through March 2019 there was 4 shootings by Vancouver Police Department (VPD) Officers: (To honor all of families grieving we chose to not release any additional details as part of this initiative)

African-American man shot and injured by VPD in Portland, Oregon
Chuukese 16-year-old did not survive shooting by VPD in Vancouver, Washington
Homeless man shot did not survive shooting by VPD in Vancouver, Washington
African-American man did not survive shooting VPD in Vancouver, Washington
Our community is outraged and do not feel safe as in the last 25 years Vancouver, Washington has not felt or heard of this type of activity from our Local Police Department (The Columbian, 3/2019) and as a comm”UNITY” we need to seek changes in the ways Vancouver Police responds to our community of color and marginalized community members in mental health crisis. We need to know what has happened in 2019 that would dramatically change VPD police outcomes in such a short period of time when Vancouver police have upheld a reputation that they do not use excessive force... until this year! ALL community deserves and has the right to feel safe in their community and it is time for us to STAND UP…and BE HEARD!
