Throughout this month, I'll be travelling with the Women's Foundation of Oregon around the state to hear and document the concerns of women and girls in side the story booth/WFO RV! Their goal is to create a report on the state of women and girls. I was really surprised to find out that no such thing exists already and it makes me that much more excited about being part of the tour. Later in the year, I'll help create a series of ten videos that highlight critical concerns and issues.
Last week we were in Newport and Bend. This week we're in Central and Southern Oregon. Later in the month it's Umatilla and Eastern Oregon. It's really an honor to sit with women in the booth and just listen as they share their stories. Looking forward to more and to the full report which will come out later this year.
While I'm out in the RV, WFO staff, led by Emily Evans, creates opportunities for women to record and give feedback in small groups. Here are some photos I took from the same event in Newport.
