Using The Trump Head To Understand Trauma in Portland

Velo Cult brought together neuroscience research on racial prejudice and artful activism. 

Teressa Raiford, founder of Don't Shoot Portland, spoke to the audience. Jermaine as Trump head was menacing in front of a crowd. The crowd berated him, made him apologize, and put him in cuffs. This was to demonstrate that when people are held accountable for their actions that the threat and fear originally produced goes away.
