|À propos de nous||APANO is a statewide nonpartisan 501(c)(4) political advocacy and leadership development organization focused on Asian and Pacific Islander concerns.|
|Mission||The Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon is a statewide, grassroots organization, uniting Asians and Pacific Islanders to achieve social justice. We use our collective strengths to advance equity through empowering, organizing and advocating with our communities.|
We envision a just and equitable world where Asians and Pacific Islanders are fully engaged in the social, economic and political issues that affect us.
Our communities find strength in a powerful political voice shaped by passion, self-determination and our diverse cultural and ethnic heritages.
Strong relationships are the foundation of meaningful change. Our experiences as Asians and Pacific Islanders inspire our partnerships with each other and promote our coalition building in order to find solutions to shared concerns.
Our leadership must emerge from, be reflective of, and be accountable to, the diverse needs, interests and heritages within our Asian and Pacific Islander communities.
The root causes of inequities are connected and shape our social justice and human rights work. We stand in solidarity with other communities who experience oppression.
