This morning, Nick was proud to join Lowenstein Trustee Michelle Harper in presenting the 2014 Steve Lowenstein Trust Award to Ignacio Paramo.
The Lowenstein Trust Award is named for attorney, author, and civil rights activist Steve Lowenstein. The award is given to individuals who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of low-income people in our community.
Ignacio Paramo has been a tireless advocate for the immigrant community in Portland for the last 15 years. He works at VOZ Workers’ Rights Education Project, as the Director - and heart - of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Worker Center.
VOZ is a remarkable worker-led organization in Portland. It empowers immigrant and day laborers with leadership development, organizing, and community education.
Congratulations, Ignacio! Thank you for making a difference!
