Portland City Hall

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 RSVP@mail.irco.org and include your Name, Title, Organization and email address.
