Statement by the Oregon State Bar, Friday June 2, 2017
This has been a period of sadness and reflection in Oregon, following the tragic events on the MAX train in late May. The Oregon State Bar, and the state’s legal community, share in the sadness and horror of these events, and extend our deepest condolences to those impacted.
At the core of the OSB’s mission is support of a system that is inclusive, equitable and provides access to justice for the entire Oregon community. Toward that ideal, we stand firmly with our Muslim & African American communities, and with all other marginalized communities. These events only reinforce our continued commitment to creating and maintaining a safe and welcoming community for all.
