Statement on Gretchen Kafoury
Portland has lost an iconic leader with the passing of Gretchen Kafoury. Without her leadership our community would be less rich. She gifted us by lending her voice to causes as diverse as ending homelessness, reducing gun violence, and promoting equality for all – including women and the LGBT community. It was my honor to serve as her representative to the Multnomah County Community Action Commission when she served on the Portland City Council. Gretchen mentored a generation of young Oregonians that will carry on her legacy by continuing the fight for the causes she held most dear.
