We need to (re)commit to In Other Words!

October 11, 2014

October is the birthday month for In Other Words. We have been a resource for feminist communities in Portland for 21 years! This month is both a beautiful reminder of how long we have lasted and the relationships and people we have impacted, but also bittersweet as we celebrate during a very trying time.  Can you help us meet our goals this month in order to ensure we don’t have to close our doors this month?  We need to meet our $5,000 goal this month as well as welcome a significant infusion of new board members and volunteers in order to ensure we don’t go out of business.  Please ask your friends and networks to donate their time and resources as they are able!  We are relying on you, our feminist communities, to keep us relevant and in business for another 21 years. We have four weeks in order to build up our capacity in terms of new volunteers, new board members, and new monthly donations.  If we haven’t met our capacity goals by November 8th, we will need to close our doors.  Please help us ensure that is not the case!

♦ In Other Words needs a substantial increase in financial gifts, particularly in monthly sustaining funds.

♦ In Other Words has an urgent need for more volunteer leadership and immediate open seats on the Board of Directors.  Please view the full list of open positions on our blog and job descriptions at the bottom of our homepage.

♦ Please email to express interest in volunteering, and plan to attend the volunteer orientation on October 18th at 3PM.  Please encourage your  friends and networks to do the same.

♦ Please email to apply to the board of directors, and plan to attend the next Board of Directors meetings on October 16th at 6:15PM.

♦ Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for most current updated information.
