It didn't have to be this way.

The epidemic of gun violence continues to escalate throughout Oregon and especially in Portland.

As of May 25, 2022, eighty-nine people in Oregon have been fatally shot in 2022 alone. In the same time period in 2021, sixty-seven Oregonians were fatally shot; forty-one people were fatally shot in that time period in 2020. (Data: Gun Violence Archive)


The Ceasefire Oregon Education Foundation works to reduce the number of gun injuries and deaths in Oregon by educating the public and providing opportunities to dispose of unwanted firearms.
