Resolution Condemning Hate Crimes
Posted on 01/20/2021
This is the image for the news article titled Resolution Condemning Hate CrimesOn Jan. 19, the Portland Board of Public Education held a first read and a workshop on a resolution to condemn recent hate crimes targeting LGBTQ community members.

The proposed resolution reads in part: “The Portland School Board condemns the string of recent hate crimes in which residents in Portland and South Portland received dangerous and threatening letters in the mail. The letters contained a satanic temple logo superimposed over a Pride flag and a deeply threatening homophobic slur. It appears the person(s) responsible may be targeting those who fly a Pride flag or Black Lives Matter flag outside of their homes.”

Read the full proposed resolution.

The Board is slated to vote on the resolution at its Feb. 2 meeting.
