4th Annual Lobby Day April 13th, Registration still open!

We are just days away from our Asian and Pacific Islander Lobby Day in Salem, on Monday April 13th. Community members from Eugene, Portland, Corvallis, Beaverton, and Gresham will be coming to our state capitol for a full day of civic engagement and using our stories to connect with elected officials. It is an important day to raise the visibility of our diverse languages, cultures, and experiences. Each of us can make a difference by attending and speaking with authentic voices, so that our needs and issues get heard. It’s not too late to register for our Lobby Day. We hope to see you there!

If you have any questions, or would like to register, please email kathy@apano.org or call 971-269-7595.
