AAUW of Oregon joins the country and our other branches in other states in mourning the losses of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless other people of color who have been unjustly killed across our nation. Our country needs healing. But healing will only come with justice. As an organization we condemn racism.
Systemic racism is firmly rooted in the U.S. and today’s injustices mirror our shameful history — from police brutality to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color. There can be no justice or equality when Black and Brown communities are seen as less deserving of basic human and civil rights.
We in Oregon have seen this in our own history.On behalf of our 1300 members and supporters, we commit to fighting for justice, long-term and lasting change, and we stand in solidarity against racism. We also acknowledge that as an organization we have our own work to do.
AAUW of Oregon will continue to advocate with strength and urgency for a time when safety and justice are rights shared by everyone.
AAUW of Oregon Covid-19 Guidelines – September 3, 2020
AAUW CEO Kim Churches writes: “Given that you are your own IRS sanctioned charity and that your geography is different than the DC metro area, we continue to advise to follow local elected officials’ guidelines and local public health requirements.”
AAUW National staff are not currently holding in-person meetings or official travel and do not plan to do so until at least 2021.
However, National continues to recommend that States and branches bear in mind that the average age of our members is 72+ and that members in the more vulnerable age group and anyone with underlying conditions take all possible precautions.
AAUW of Oregon strongly advises all branches to refer to the State of Oregon and local directives before planning meetings or events. The health, safety and welfare of our members is our highest priority.
