CENTER FOR INTERCULTURAL ORGANIZING
October 4, 2013

Review by Tom Potter:
The Center for Intercultural Organizing has been providing services to Oregon's refugees, immigrants and communities of color for the last ten years. Their strength lies in bringing together different communities and providing them with the tools to expand their internal leadership, build community capacity, and influence public policies that effect their communities.
As Mayor of Portland from 2005-2009, I had the opportunity to work with the CIO and watch them interact with Portland's various communities to empower and engage them in making government work for them. Their efforts have made the Portland Metro area and our state of Oregon a better place for everyone, especially our recent arrivals and the communities of color. These groups have not always been part of the governance process and it is heart-warming to see the transition with individuals who were formerly afraid of government to come forward and work with government to improve the lives of their families and communities.
