In 2019, a group of Venezuelans in Oregon designed and launched the ‘Ask A Venezuelan’ campaign in the Portland area. The humanitarian and political crises have been and continue to be devastating for their family and friends back home in Venezuela. As the situation in Venezuela grows in importance in US national news, many individuals, not Venezuelan themselves, have voiced their own perspective about the current state in this Caribbean country, without inviting the Venezuelan perspective to the table. In short order, the group of Venezuelans designed a double-sided flyer to give out at public spaces in Portland and buttons to wear and identify their membership in the campaign.
The campaign has been shared with Venezuelan human rights organization, Un Mundo Sin Mordaza, and other groups of Venezuela across the US.
