Center for Intercultural Organizing ( CIO) has been working with with the Immigrant and refugee communities ( IR)in Oregon to empower and build a multi-ethnic/racial movement. for the last three years I have know CIO since the work in Washington County in Oregon started. CIO had reached out to all the IR communities to invite them to the Beaverton CIty Hall, in order to build a strong representation for IR and people of color in civic life in the City. Now in Beaverton there are IR leaders that are parts of boards and commissions because of the training and the advocacy work that CIO had done to engage the IR leaders . I'm honored that to be a part of such and organization that not only work with the communities for building capacity. But the policy work on state, Counties and Cities level to review and recommend inclusive policies for all Oregonians in Oregon.
