We want to thank everyone who came to the “Global Goals, Local Leaders” celebration of UN Day at the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO) in October. It was a remarkable event, with excellent food for thought provided by our inspiring speakers, Djimet Dogo from Africa House and Jordie Hannum from the Better World Campaign (pictured below). We also thank the volunteers from GPSEN, the United Nations Association-Portland and Hosteling International USA-Portland Hawthorne Hostel who helped make it happen.
