COFA Fact Sheet

APANO has researched and produced a fact sheet on communities in Oregon who are affected by the Compact of Free Association (COFA).

Citizens of the Republic of Palau, Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands have a unique immigration relationship with the United States through the Compact of Free Association. In conjunction with our community partners, APANO has published a 4 page fact sheet that provides policy makers, advocates and the media important background and issues that impact this growing community in Oregon.

Key Highlights:

  • Census estimate of 3,000 COFA citizens in Oregon
  • One of the fastest growing communities in the USA
  • Face long-term impacts of over 67 nuclear and atomic bomb testings, the magnitude of which equates to 7,200 Hiroshima detonations
  • Significant barriers to basic health services due to federal exclusions

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
