You were with us when we passed the Woodburn’s School Bond Measure and when we elected the first Latina immigrant to Oregon’s State Legislature.
Now we ask you to join us in our next journey—launch our campaign to elect the first Latino to the Salem-Keizer School Board and two more to the Woodburn School Board.
Governor Barbara Roberts will be our special guest for the event. Governor Roberts has been a longstanding ally. She began her political career as a school board member. She is also considered the madrina (Godmother) of Nuevo Amanecer, the first low-income farmworker housing tax- credit project in the nation—located in Woodburn, Oregon.
Who knew that twenty-seven years later we would have three Latinx with a farmworker background running for public office.
Appetizers and beverages will be provided. $15 entrance fee.
