Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty has been leading the charge to change policing in Portland for decades. Now, during the global uprising against police violence and anti-Black racism, Hardesty is at the forefront of many police reform conversations in Portland and the state of Oregon. Last week, she wrote an open letter to Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell requesting changes to the way police handle protests. And yesterday, Hardesty was appointed to Gov. Kate Brown’s Public Safety Training and Standards Task Force, which will review police training and hiring practices. Hardesty joins us to talk about her work on police reform and what she’s working on next.
