October 29, 2013: We are deeply saddened by the news that Fred Bryant passed away today. We interviewed Fred earlier this year for the Safe & Sound?
project. He was a tireless advocate for justice for his son Keaton Otis
, holding a monthly vigil at the site of his son's death at the hands of the Portland Police. His commitment, courage, and warmth will continue to be an inspiration to us.
Safe & Sound?
is a collection of short documentary videos focused on three types of stories about Portland, Oregon: (1) egregious stories of police brutality, (2) stories about community resistance to police brutality, and (3) stories from community members about their own interactions with police and the justice system. Each story has its own page on this site, and you may view the entire collection as a complete video here.
