On March 23, Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued an executive order calling for Oregonians to stay home, closing specific retail businesses, and requiring social distancing in most cases, immediately and until further notice. Social gatherings with people from outside of your household are not allowed until further notice.
The mission of Black Women of Achievement (B.W.A.) is to provide a social, cultural, education, and physical development of women of color, specifically African American women, but not limited to. We are here for the advancement of their individual and collective interest both on University of Oregon Campus and in the community. B.W.A. serves as a foundation for African American women to come together and discuss issues affecting women, our community and women of color. In turn, we host a series of events, which include: Ethnic Hair Care Day, Women’s Empowerment Luncheon, Ebony Man, Higher Learning, Fall Breakfast and B.W.A/Women’s Space Clothing Drive.
