Faces of IRCO: Iraqi Culture Night

FACES OF IRCO: IRAQ

 

On Wednesday, September 15, 6:30-8:00pm, we will meet at the IRCO's Main Office (10301 NE Glisan Street) to continue Faces of IRCO, our on-going series of monthly cultural workshops offered by IRCO staff and volunteers, to learn more about Iraq. People from Iraq only began to be resettled in Portland a few years ago, but already were the largest population coming in 2009 and it is expected that the Iraqi population will continue to grow at a rapid rate in the coming years.

 

Please pass this invite along to anyone you think may be interested and remember to RSVP to [email protected] if you plan to come.
