April 2021: AAUW of Oregon Annual Meeting

Annual Meeting Logo

It’s been a challenging year, but we’ve pulled together and are making it work. Instead of booking a hotel room, driving long distances, sleeping in a strange bed, and eating way too much food, you can attend our Annual Meeting from the comfort of your own home.

       -Welcome: Co-Presidents Sue Klumph & Pat Lehman
       -Keynote:  Jessica Vega Pederson, Multnomah County Commissioner, former legislator, and author of a groundbreaking report, “Pre-School for All.” She spearheaded a two-year-long process that gathered community leaders from many sectors (education, business, housing, healthcare, and parents) to craft ballot measure 26-214, “Pre-School for All,” which passed in the November 2020 Election with 64% support. Note: Oregon and Washington are in the top ten of the least affordable states for center-based infant care, and families pay at least 30% of their income for this care. As we all know, the early years of a child’s life are crucial for social, emotional and cognitive development.
