Sign the petition: Multnomah County welcomes refugees!
This fear-based rhetoric from extreme politicians calling for closing our doors to refugees needs to stop.
East Portland is a dynamic place because of the people living here from all over the world. Immigrant and refugee communities add small businesses, restaurants, and churches that help fuel our economy and add vibrancy to our neighborhoods. They follow in the proud tradition of generations of immigrants who have come to the United States to create a better life for their families.
One reason I’m running for Multnomah County Commissioner is to stand with and protect our diverse communities. We’re richer for them, and I want people to know that. I’m standing with refugees that are seeking shelter and safety – sign the petition and join me!
