50 yr. old Oregon political group suddenly closes

By NW Spotlight,

Quote of the week,

“Pro-Choice Oregon, one of the state’s leading reproductive rights advocacy organizations, publicly announced Tuesday that the 50-year-old non-profit was dissolving …. Ariane Le Chevallier, who was a Pro-Choice Oregon board member between 2017 and 2021 and left after her term expired, said she suspected financial struggles and internal strife around racial equity issues factored into the organization’s decision to dissolve.  While remaining independent from NARAL Pro-Choice America granted Pro-Choice Oregon more autonomy, it potentially cut the state non-profit off from financial support and brand recognition the national organization could provide, Le Chevallier said.”
