Elections are quickly approaching here in Portland so we're talking to Brandon Cruz from APANO (Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon) to talk about their Voter Guide and efforts to increase voter participation. We'll also be talking to Matt Lim who works for the city of Portland about affnity groups for city employees. Also, we include a vox pop about mental health from interviews collected at this year's East Portland Arts and Literary Festival.
