Interview with Eva Lamar

Advocate and Community Advocacy Council (CAC) Member

What is one of your hobbies?
One of my hobbies is kayaking on Oregon lakes. There is something about floating on a lake and watching soaring eagles.
What is one thing you are proud of?
I am proud of my community when they band together to support all members.
Why do you think advocacy is important?
Advocacy is important to me because we, as a community, must be active in the community. We must be open to learning from others and helping with supports that the community identifies as needed.
What is your favorite local resource?
One of my favorite local resources is the A-team here in Eugene and Springfield.
