Women's Foundation of Oregon (WFO) has announced Libra Forde as our new Executive Director! Read the full announcement with more information from Libra, Shadiin, and others. Please save the date for an in-person meet and greet event on August 13, 2022, with more information forthcoming.

Libra's vision for gender justice in Oregon is courageous, relational, and intersectional, and WFO's Board of Directors is proud to share that Libra is concurrently serving as interim Executive Director for Western States Center (WSC) as they hire new leadership. A strong and synergistic relationship between WFO and WSC will grow collaboration towards greater gender equity in the region.

Finally, regarding the recent SCOTUS decision, Libra Forde says:
"Women’s Foundation of Oregon has been and will always be committed to the protection of all rights that elevate women, femme, non-binary, transgender lives. The overturn of Roe v. Wade is unacceptable and requires all of us to activate! We are gathering our resources, developing a plan, and preparing for a fight. Stay tuned for more information. Until then, love hard and receive love!"
