Become a Bridge

Become a Bridge

Bridges span two sides. Portland is famous for its bridges (among many other, uh, interesting things we are famous for). I’m looking for bridges (aka cultural ambassadors, volunteers, etc.) who are willing to span two cultures: those of us in Portland who are established locals with newer arrivals from more international cultures (Asia, Africa, Middle East, etc.).
