Join Pacific University for an online presentation by Israel Pastrana, on the historical origins of Latinx migration to Oregon and the Pacific Northwest focusing on the role of labor, industry, and technology as drivers of transnational migration.

While Latinx people and communities are often perceived as recent arrivals to the state, the migration of people from Mexico has been a near constant presence for over 150 years. By highlighting the long history of Mexican migration and community formation in places far away from the U.S. and Mexico border, this presentation helps us better understand the migratory roots and routes of Latinx communities in Oregon, and how this history continues to impact communities today.

This is the first of a five-part Latinx History Lecture series presented by the President's Office, SMC, MCCE, the School of Occupational Therapy and Washington County.
