Over the last several years, members of the Latino community of The Dalles, Oregon have been voicing serious concern that they have become victims of abuse from some employees in the justice system in Wasco County.
Last week, a local group called "We the People" held a community forum to discus their concerns with city officials. Among the 150 community members who attended, the city of The Dalles Mayor, City Manager and the Chief of Police were also present. CAUSA was honored to have been in attendance to support the positive exchange.
During the event, members of the community offered a 10 point proposal to city officials. By the end of the forum, the Mayor, the City Manager and the Chief of Police agreed to review the proposal and work with the Latino Community to come up with solutions.
