Who we are

Izo was born from the need to take action to benefit our Latino community in Oregon. Our founder has dedicated his life to working on behalf of Hispanics in the state. His experience across different spaces made him identify an untold reality: the lack of a genuine connection with the community. This led him to devise a form of Hispanic-to-Hispanic communication. That’s how he did it, or shall we say in Spanish, “así lo HIZO,” and has been doing so since 2009, focusing on campaigns that strengthen Latin Americans’ present and future.
