"The election to save lives is too close to call. Every vote counts!"
Antoinette Edwards, the retired director of Portland's Office of Youth Violence Intervention, tells KGW she has been fighting for a measure like this her entire life.“I have watched too many young people lose their lives and cross the yellow tape lines,” said Edwards. “In fact, I always bring young people with me every time I speak to be reminded of why we must do something different. We have to.”
