Review for Center For Intercultural Organizing, Portland, OR, USA
As a person who believes in a multicultural society that benefits and includes all, I have found the Center for Intercultural Organizing to be a place where I can act on that belief. As a US-born American, I feel it is my job to help welcome the newcomers to the United States by ensuring our laws, policies and community are fair and just. The CIO gives allies like me ways in which we can be effective in advocating for justice. Through trainings like Refugee and Immigrant Solidarity Education (RISE), I learned the issues and challenges immigrants face and was able to put this information into change through activites at CIO. I recommend everyone in Oregon who cares about racial equity and immigrant rights to join this organization!
