Linda Castillo

Immigrant and Refugee Integration, Equity in Practice Advisor
City of Portland Office of Community and Civic Life


I support WorldOregon a nation of nations, we have much to learn and teach each other thru our multicultural, multiracial identities and experiences to flourish as a society and in our humanity.
Languages I speak: English, Spanish and Spanglish.
A person who inspires me: I am inspired by Frida Kahlo. She overcame incredible adversity, lived an incredible life, broke barriers, and is the most iconic Mexican artist of our time.
Why Oregon means the world to me: Oregon means the world to me because of incredible natural beauty, it's where I’ve raised my family, and despite its difficult history, its potential to be an example of best practices for diversity, equity and social justice.
