Building BIPOC Leadership in Oregon

Join Oregon Futures Lab and Color PAC  at a February 2nd virtual gathering at 6 pm, in celebration of Leaders Like Us: Building BIPOC Leadership in Oregon. These two groups invite you to join in a celebration and recognition of achievements:

“As we close a devastating chapter in our nation’s history, and the healing continues, we invite you to ground with us for a moment in hard-fought local victories. Learn the names and faces of some of Oregon’s Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and AAPI elected officials –– leaders who work earnestly to turn protest into policy, and policy into power. Learn about their interests, their values, and their motivations to serve.

“You’ll hear firsthand from State Representative Tawna Sanchez, Washington County Commissioner Nafisa Fai, Hermiston City Councilor Roy Barron, and Beaverton School District Zone 2 candidate Karen Pérez-Da Silva.”
