January 10, 2021
The AAUW Oregon Board voted today to release the following statement on the Oregon website and social media platforms.
We express our profound shock and disappointment about the events that took place on January 6, 2021, in Washington, DC, and elsewhere. We also affirm our commitment to our democratic principles. Our country’s democracy is undeniably imperfect, but it represents a worthy ideal. Violence in the name of a political point of view should not be tolerated.

Author and Teacher Speaks about Social Justice
We actively support national AAUW programs by raising awareness of Public Policy Issues and by fundraising for AAUW Fund, which awards fellowships and grants. Our branch also awards a scholarship to a woman who attends Portland Community College in preparation for a 4-year degree.
MEMBER SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS
Our mission of advancement for women is a priority for our branch. We offer fellowship, networking, and the opportunity to make lifelong friends. Our interest groups include:
- Book Discussion
- Movie Group
- NW Discoveries: Excursions that are sometimes off the beaten track. In addition to known Portland attractions such as the Art Museum and the Rose Garden, we have explored more eclectic interests, such as going behind the scenes with a judge or learning how to decorate a cake. Usually, a docent or instructor brings our subject to life; then we talk about our experiences over lunch.
