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.

Anthony has earned the community’s trust as the first Latino elected to the Woodburn School District’s Board of Directors and the second Latino elected to serve on the city council for the City of Woodburn. He has served on the State Board of Education and other non-profit boards. Anthony has consulted with many organizations on equity, diversity, inclusion, and recruitment. His expertise in the growing multicultural and Latino community is unmatched.
