💢 Monday marked four months of protests in Portland. Police moved in on Monday’s planned protest and made several arrests. This was before demonstrators had begun marching when police moved in on them in a North Portland park. This caught the group off guard and delayed the demonstration. A person holding a “Vote” sign was commanded to surrender the sign to police. (Oregon Public Broadcasting / OregonLive)
🍱 Oregon families in need are getting lunch money. With the COVID-19 pandemic upending how school typically looks, many families in need have been concerned. Often schools providing free school lunches and breakfasts have been a welcome relief for students whose families may be struggling. Fortunately Oregon’s education and human services departments announced they’re putting school lunch money directly into the hands of families to ensure children are getting the nutrition they need. This “Pandemic EBT” will also go hand in hand with local efforts from school districts to provide meals to families. (Oregon Public Broadcasting)
