Coming September 19th
For much of this year, Underscore reporter Sergio Olmos was granted on-the-record access to Joey Gibson, founder of Patriot Prayer, one of the violence-prone, far-right groups that have turned Portland into a cage match with violent liberal groups.
On Aug. 15, Underscore and the Portland Tribune published an article by Olmos about the lead-up to a violent 2018 Patriot Prayer protest. The second story in the “Band of Others” series is scheduled for publication on Sept. 19. It tracks Gibson and some of his followers from March 14 to June 29, exploring the complex motivations of those drawn into Gibson’s orbit and the complicated relationships between them.
