  • North on SW 4th Avenue to SW Pine
  • East on SW Pine to SW Naito Parkway
  • South on SW Naito Parkway to SW Jefferson
  • West on SW Jefferson back to Terry Schrunk Plaza

Post-march activities continued at the plaza until 4 p.m.

The Tax March in Portland was part of a nationwide demonstration. More than 100 marches took place in cities across the country. Every president since Richard Nixon has released his tax returns with the exception of Trump.
