Welcoming Week 2021!
Latino Fest formed part of Central Oregon’s Welcoming Week, Sept. 10-19, 2021. LCA wants to educate Oregonians about the lives of our immigrant neighbors and the challenges they experience. So we invite the community to attend two virtual events:
We hoped to invite visitors to our new office in Bend. Instead, we will feature a video of stories from local immigrants who will talk about how they felt welcome (or unwelcome) in Central Oregon.
EVENT #2: Presentation titled “Why We Need Full Immigrant Inclusion NOW,” 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 13
Why is it imperative for Congress to pass a new program to provide a path to legal status and citizenship for 11 million immigrants in the U.S.? An immigrant LCA staffer and an attorney will join other LCA staff in the conversation and answer questions from guests.
