​Mission Statement: Aims of FFTI's 2019 Portland T.I. Rally
  1. To provide a safe and enjoyable opportunity for victims of organized stalking, electronic harassment, and related crimes to congregate, network, and speak out about the abuses being done to them.

  2. To raise the local public’s awareness about the growing (and already pervasive) crimes of organized gang stalking, surveillance abuse, electronic harassment, and electromagnetic no-touch torture with radiofrequency directed-energy weapons.

  3. To demand that local and state police, as well as other members of the emergency services, start treating reporting victims with dignity, and that they begin recording official reports of the victims’ claims about organized stalking and electronic harassment.

  4. To motivate Portland’s Mayor and City Council, as well as Oregon’s Governor and other elected representatives at the state and national levels, to draft and pass modern legislation condemning and criminalizing organized stalking, electronic harassment, and related crimes. (To really address these destructive criminal issues, such legislation needs to be written in language aligned with the victims' reports.)

  5. To empower the targeted individual community in the Pacific Northwest with a feeling of strength and the motivation to continue working to expose these modern-day atrocities.

Please Contribute to the Success and Effectiveness of this Event

To show continued growth of the T.I. movement, we want to try to make this event even larger than the hugely successful 2019 T.I. Springtime Rally in Sacramento, CA. FFTI's upcoming rally in Portland will require permits, rentals, and sound equipment. We are also planning to hire local musicians for our "200 Candles Vigil", and there are several other smaller expenses as well. To cover these costs, we have set up a GoFundMe campaign with a goal of $3,000. If you believe in our mission, would like to help us be as successful as possible, and have a few dollars to spare, please visit our GoFundMe page and donate. Contributions of any size are greatly appreciated. Visit the following url to donate: https://www.gofundme.com/portland-ti-rally-august-29-2019.
