On September 24th, in celebration of Latino/a Heritage Month 2016, Yamhill County hosted “Sabor Latino” at the Chemeketa Community College Yamhill Valley Campus – and the OMA project Nuestras Voces y Herencia was there to share the stories gathered so far!
“Sabor Latino” was a collaborative event presented by the Latino Advocacy Coalition of Yamhill County. The Latino Advocacy Coalition (LAC) gathers each month to work toward a vision of inclusive, diverse, and equitable communities in Yamhill County.
The event included music, dance, zumba, and food! Nuestras Voces y Herencia had a space to share information about the project and featured about 30 minutes of clips from a variety of oral history interviews. We shared the room with an exhibit of photographs of the Woodburn area Latino/a community. Check out all the pics below:
