Portland’s First Multilingual Resource Guide

News Article
Prior to Welcoming Week, Civic Life worked with the New Portlanders Policy Commission (NPPC) and other community groups to develop Portland’s first multilingual guide that would serve as a “road map” for new immigrants and refugees coming to Portland.

The City of Portland believes that immigrant and refugee communities keep Portland, and the country, culturally vibrant, innovative, prosperous, and more interesting. This brochure is one way to ensure immigrant and refugee communities feel welcomed and have the information needed to ease their transition into Portland. Read the brochure in multiple languages on our website.

“This brochure is a ‘soft launch’ and a starting point to build more equitable, expansive, and inclusive multicultural communications,” said Civic Life’s Strategic Communications Officer Daniel McArdle-Jaimes. “Later this year, our team plans to do a large citywide assessment to further improve our reach and refine our community engagement while examining our newly earned census data.”    

Civic Life is also proud to feature the stories of members from the New Portlanders Policy Commission and Multnomah Youth Commission describing their journey to Portland. Watch and listen to these 11 powerful short stories on our website.
