Today, we're pleased to announce the endorsement of the Somali American Council of Oregon (SACOO).
"The Somali American Council of Oregon is honored to endorse the Portlanders for Safe and Healthy Schools campaign. We've worked in close partnership with Portland Public Schools to support a dual immersion program for our Somali youth, and this bond will ensure that these programs can live on in the rebuilt Madison and Kellogg schools, which this bond will ensure are built to be safe and modern buildings. This is an investment in the Somali-American communities children, and we ask the entire Portland community to vote YES this May on Measure 26-193."
