We recently were given access to the Oregon Historical Society's film archive, which houses an incredible collection of archival newsreel from the 1940s to the present. We obtained footage from their Civil Rights collection which includes footage that documents of police and community relations. We also obtained footage of local marches, rallies, and organizing meetings, all proving that the struggle for an accountable police force in Portland has impacted generations.
All proceeds from sales of Arresting Power DVDs and merchandise go to support the work of groups fighting for police accountability and community empowerment. These groups include Black Lives Matter (national and Portland), Portland Copwatch, the Albina Ministerial Alliance for Justice and Police Reform, and others funds as needed.
