Flag at half-staff

On Friday, May 18, Governor Brown ordered all flags at Oregon public institutions to be flown at half-staff immediately until sunset on May 22 in honor of the victims of the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

"As we grieve with the students, teachers, and first responders of the Santa Fe community, it is incredibly disheartening that yet another school shooting has happened in our nation," Governor Kate Brown said.

"We must take local and national action to stop gun violence and keep our schools and community safe."

The White House also issued a national flag-order, and the full presidential proclamation will be available here.
