Deepa Iyer at This Year's Statewide Convention: Rolling Tides


We are honored to have founding Executive Director of South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), activist and writer, Deepa Iyer. Deepa steered the direction of SAALT, the only progressive national organization addressing issues facing South Asians, for nearly a decade. Under Deepa’s leadership, SAALT launched the first national network of South Asian organizations, became a leading voice on post 9/11, civil rights and immigration issues in the media, and is a go-to resource for policymakers in Washington D,C. on the South Asian community. Deepa also chaired the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) for three years and helped to develop the infrastructure and visibility of national AAPI organizations in the United States.


The banquet will also feature a special performance from Unit Souzu. Portland’s newest professional taiko company, Unit Souzou (pronounced “sohzoh”), is at the forefront of a growing artistic movement in the taiko world. Michelle Fujii and Toru Watanabe, co-directors of Unit Souzou are relentless innovators known for their groundbreaking fusion of taiko and Japanese folk dance. Through public performances, education programs in schools, public classes and community outreach activities, Unit Souzou is delighted to create an empowering voice that can inspire and evolve.

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.
