ENGAGE leaders to present civic participation survey results

of immigrant and refugee communities


Saturday, May 4, 2013
10:00 a.m. to Noon

Portland City Hall
1221 SW 4th Ave., Portland, OR 97204

ENGAGE leaders have interviewed more than 250 community members from 25 different ethnic communities from around the Portland Metro area. The survey covers 3 main civic indicators: participation in volunteer groups, voting behaviors and attitudes, and expressing political voice. ENGAGE leaders will be able to share directly about how their communities are involved and what needs to be done to get them more involved.

IRCO’s Diversity and Civic Leadership program in partnership with the City of Portland’s New Portlander program is honored to invite government leaders and public involvement staff to spend the morning with these diverse community leaders face-to-face.

Please RSVP to and include your Name, Title, Organization and email address.

IRCO’s Diversity and Civic Leadership (DCL) program is funded through the City of Portland’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement. The program’s signature activity is the ENGAGE Diversity & Civic Leadership Training offered annually. Over 100 Slavic, African, Asian, and Pacific Islander community members have participated in this program since 2008 educating, organizing, informing, and engaging a new generation of leaders.
