Portland Protests | Imagining A President Trump | Portland Zoning Changes

82nd Avenue and Burnside

Sloan Chambers/OPB

  • Portland Police Chief Mike Marshman tells us about the police response to protests in Portland since Donald Trump was elected president.
  • We talk to two African-American community leaders, Jo Ann Hardesty and Eric Knox, about what the last week has been like for them and how they envision life under a Trump administration.
  • The Portland City Council is considering big changes in what kinds of homes should be allowed. It could mean more duplexes, more triplexes — more density overall. Our guests are Madeline Kovacs, program coordinator of Portland for Everyone, and Kirk Ranzetta, chair of the Portland Historic Landmarks Commission.
