The CEO of the Portland-based legal software company joins a group of big firm lawyers and nonprofit attorneys that will represent immigrants nationwide at risk of deportation.
President Trump's immigration ban prompted widespread condemnation from many Oregon businesses. Many CEOs also said they were eager to do more than issue a statement of opposition but were uncertain about how to move forward.
On Saturday, Zapproved CEO Monica Enand sent Oregon Business the following, gleeful e-mail message: "I have finally figured out what I am going to do, and I am super excited!"
Here's what she's doing: Enand has joined a new national effort to provide representation for immigrants called the American Immigrant Representation Project. She was invited to join the steering committee to represent the tech and business communities.
"We are very proud to be actively working with this project," says Chris Bright, Zapproved VP of Marketing.
