What's happening in one of Oregon's most diverse house districts? An interview with State Representative Lew Frederick (D- Portland; District 43)

Oregon House District 43 is home to many of Portland's historic and more recently formed communities of color. It is also an area experiencing higher rates of unemployment, home foreclosure, police misconduct and use of deadly force, and gentrification-driven displacement than other areas of the city. This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave talk with State Representative Lew Frederick about what's happening in his district and what role he sees state government playing in addressing these problems.

Jo Ann Bowman is a former state legislator, former executive director of Oregon Action, and a long-time leader in the struggle for racial and economic justice. Dave Mazza is a freelance journalist and former editor of The Portland Alliance who has covered and been involved in Portland's civil rights, peace, labor and environmental movements for 20 years.
