The Loss of a Passionate Leader, Gretchen Kafoury

Gretchen KafouryThe Board and staff of the Urban League of Portland extend our condolences to the family of Gretchen Kafoury as we mourn the passing of an exceptional leader in our city.  We join countless Oregonians whose lives were improved by Kafoury’s work advancing equality around our state in celebrating the life of a passionate public advocate and fearless leader. Her passion for women’s rights, affordable housing, and health equity, among many other issues of social justice, have improved quality and the promise of life for thousands of Oregonians. We are honored and privileged to have her portrait adorning the front of our building and we will forever remember all that she has meant to our community.
