Joseph Santos-Lyons

Since the early 1970's, Joseph has migrated around Oregon, living in Clackamas, Marion, Lane and Multnomah counties. A hapa with three kids in school, a burgeoning urban garden and a divinity degree, he dedicates the rest of his time as staff for the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO) working on racial equity in public policy and civic engagement. Previously he knocked on 1,000 doors mostly in N/NE Portland and phone banked 1,000 people to get involved. "We need to have more voices, leaders and ideas from all of Oregon's communities. At APANO, we envision a world where we are engaged in the political, economic and social issues that impact us."
