This in-person event will be held at the Latino Community Association’s Bend location. For this year’s theme of “Where We Belong” the Association will have immigrant community members speak on how the Bend community made them feel welcome upon arriving in the area. This will also be an opportunity to educate community members who have conflicted feelings towards the immigrant/refugee community and address any misinformation. It will also address the contributions made to the Bend community by the immigrant/refugee community. This event will also aim to connect city leaders with immigrant/refugee community members to begin building relationships.
