I’m sure you heard Pride Foundation has a brand-new Executive Director, and guess what; she’s headed to the Beaver State! Over the past four months since joining, Pride Foundation she has hit the ground running working on things like marriage equality in Washington and securing protections for LGBT Alaskans. There are so many great things happening across our 5 states in the northwest for equality; now is your chance to chat with Kris and fill her in on all the brilliant things you’re working on in Oregon!
On Thursday, April 26th, starting at 5:30pm the Q-Center will graciously host Pride Foundation for an early evening of conversation, laughter, and celebration. You’re invited; yes you, to meet Kris Hermanns (she’s pretty awesome). Come and introduce yourself as we show Kris a warm Oregonian welcome.
Kris is really looking forward to heading to Portland– “I relish every chance that I have to meet Pride Foundation’s grantees, donors, volunteers, and scholars — which is why I’m so excited by my upcoming trip to Portland. There is no doubt that I will be meeting creative, thoughtful and caring people that share Pride Foundation’s vision for LGBTQ equality. Oregon has such a great tradition of LGBTQ leadership with groups like past grantees Basic Rights Oregon, Western States Center, Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon (PPSO), Oregon Safe Schools and Communities Coalition, Human Dignity Coalition, and Portland Latino Gay Pride—and I really hope I get to meet some of the folks from Friendly House’s Gay and Grey program for elders!” See, I told you she was awesome.
We hope to see you all at the Q-Center on Thursday, April 26th from 5:30pm-7:30pm. If you have questions or would like more information please don’t hesitate to email or call Oregon’s Regional Development Organizer Jett Johnson, 541-603-8626 or firstname.lastname@example.org
