Catherine connects with Latinx community in Canby

Catherine McMullen joined in with Bridging Cultures/Puentes Entre Culturas in Canby this morning to bring Anglo and Latinx community together for the first Sabado en el Parque since COVID19 began. Bridging Cultures in Canby strives to create and build relationships that create an equitable community. 

We started the morning working together to hang papel picado throughout Wait City Park, special decorations with Bridging Cultures/Puentes Entre Culturas cut into the colorful and delicate crepe paper.

Members of Canby Kiwanis and Bridging Cultures helped to serve food to about 200 community members. Son de Cuba played on the park gazebo stage, there was a COVID19 vaccination clinic, and community and nonprofit organizations (PCUN, Northwest Family Services, Todos Juntos, etc.) connected with residents. 

We connected with the Canby community in our Clackamas Voice tees and helped with voter registration, shared information about the next election (November 2, 2021 Special Election), and introduced Catherine McMullen as the candidate to choose for Clackamas County Clerk in 2022.   

Catherine even had the chance to introduce herself to the crowd, in a brief first campaign speech, “Hola a todos. Me llamo Catherine McMullen. ¡Quiero ser su Secretaria del condado de Clackamas! Es muy importante que todos quieran votar, pueden votar.

Hello everyone! I want to be your next Clackamas County Clerk. It is important to me that everyone that is eligible to vote is able to vote!”

Catherine officially files for office next week and will be on the ballot in 2022.  Make a contribution today for equitable and inclusive voter education and access and help move Clackamas County forward!
