Tix on Sale for 2021 Courageous Voice Breakfast with Nikema Williams!

Since 2011, the Courageous Voice Breakfast has celebrated brave leaders who speak truth in the face of hostility. Now more than ever, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon believes it's crucial to harness our collective power and amplify our stories.

At a critical moment when Roe v. Wade is at grave risk, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon is committed to keeping Oregon on the frontlines of reproductive freedom and ensuring that we remain a haven state for access to safe, legal abortion.

With the passing of Georgia Congressman John Lewis, our nation and our movement lost a civil rights hero and champion for freedom and justice. This year’s keynote speaker, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, continues to uplift the legacy of her mentor and predecessor by fighting to prevent voter suppression and expand free and fair access to the ballot box.

Williams has a long history of advancing the issues that matter to underserved people, regardless of their bank account or ZIP code, throughout her political and professional career. She has been a passionate defender of reproductive justice, a fierce advocate for social justice and a lifelong fighter for economic justice and health care.

The first Black woman elected to lead the Georgia Democratic Party, Williams spent almost eight years as Vice President of Public Policy for Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates. She also has served as Deputy Director of Civic Engagement at the National Domestic Workers Alliance.

As a State Senator, Williams got in the “good trouble” Congressman Lewis spoke about. In the wake of the disastrous 2018 Georgia elections, marked with rampant voter suppression, she was arrested at the State Capitol while peacefully protesting with her constituents, demanding that every vote be counted.

We will also proudly present the Marilyn Epstein Pro-Choice Champion Award and the Volunteer Excellence Award to leaders who have demonstrated a longtime commitment to our movement.

WHEN: 8-9am Thursday, September 23rd
