Passive No More! Oregon’s New Asian Pacific Identity | FREE

Oregon and Portland have very unique and diverse Asian and Pacific Islander communities. How have things changed over the last decade, and where is it going in the future? What is the identity of Oregon’s API community, how is it unique, and how can we leverage that to create the best possible community? Join former Oregonian reporter and American University Professor of Journalism Angie Chuang and APANO Coordinator Rev. Joseph Santos-Lyons for a sharing of perspectives on how the Asian Pacific Islander community came to be, what we can learn from that, and where it might be going. Panelists include Ronault LS Catalani, Office of New Portlanders, Bill Chin, Oregon Commission on Asian Affairs and Lewis & Clark Law School and Jane Mauk, NW Korean Culture Society.

Whether you’re writing a ten-page grant proposal, a one-page press release, or a 140-character entry for your organization’s Twitter feed, words matter — but probably not in the way you think. This workshop is not about vocabulary, grammar, persuasion, or spin. Since the beginning of time, stories have been what move people. We’ll read, write, and workshop forms of writing ranging from poetry to explanatory prose to tweets to find how each can be a form of storytelling that helps compel people to our causes. This workshop is open to the public, and designed for nonprofit staff and leaders.
Angie Chuang (MA Stanford University) brings to the classroom her experience developing one of the first regional newspaper race and ethnicity issues beats. In spring 2008, she developed a new class called Race, Ethnic and Community Reporting. Chuang joined the school of communications in 2007 after a 13-year career as a reporter at The Oregonian, The Hartford Courant and the Los Angeles Times. She has won many national and regional awards, including one from the Columbia University School of Journalism Workshop on Journalism, Race & Ethnicity.
