This is why I'm a founding member of the Women's Foundation of Oregon.
The nonprofit organization has produced the first comprehensive report on Oregon's women and girls in 20 years, Count Her In, the most expansive, actionable, and inclusive analysis of Oregon’s women and girls to date.
This report is a baseline and a call to action, a celebration of resilience, and an opportunity to do things differently for future Oregonians. Count Her In is an irrefutable imperative for change.
I invite you to watch the overview video, share the report's most startling findings on social media, and of course download the report itself. I think Governor Brown said it best: "Count Her In is our call to action as Oregonians, regardless of gender, race, zip code, or political party, to work together on solutions that will benefit women and girls and make Oregon a home where each person can thrive."
The Presidential election, in which we'll elect a new president for the first time in eight years, is a little over one month away. Are you registered to vote? Have you updated your current address and contact information? Now's a perfect time to ensure that you're all set for November.
Your vote counts just as much as everyone else's. Make sure you're registered and ready to participate in our democracy.
