I had a great lunch today with one of Oregon’s most prominent Latino leaders: Gale Castillo. Gale is the President of the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber and a member of OTC’s new Board of Advisors.
Gale and I brainstormed ways that we at Red Cross can increase our partnership with the Hispanic Chamber to reach more of Oregon’s Latino community. Representing 10% of the population, Latinos are the largest minority group – and the fastest-growing – in Oregon.
Stay tuned for news about our health and safety, emergency preparedness and response, and blood services efforts in the Latino community.
