At our last meeting, we had a really powerful and humbling Oregon Asian and Pacific Islander Migrations Stories workshop led by Cynthia Lin and created by Kyle Weissman-Yee from our API Community Leadership Institute — learning about our past to anchor a strong future. We explored the ways in which historical forces that cause migration, policy environments, and social movements roles in creating human rights based migration policy.

For July we will be engaging in small group work around the upcoming ballot measures — policies that will have real impacts on our communities.  We will work to apply our Strong Families analysis and broader knowledge of our community’s histories.  We will also have a special presentation and discussion on the Oregon Safe Roads Campaign that APANO has joined.  Working with Causa, Faith, Law Enforcement and the Business Community, APANO will be educating and mobilizing our communities in support of the Oregon Driver’s Card for all immigrants and the right of our families to thrive.
