Oregon PSR expresses our tremendous appreciation for three people who substantially advanced our work over the past year.
Madison Arnold-Scerbo (above, left), our previous Program Assistant and Quaker Voluntary Service Fellow, was instrumental in developing our 2019 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship, working on the passage and implementation of the Portland Clean Energy Fund, and representing us in a number of community coalitions. We are happy to keep Madison “in the movement,” as she has followed her year-long fellowship with us by joining the Union of Concerned Scientists staff as an Outreach Associate on their nuclear disarmament work.
Erin Lee (above, center), who interned with us over the summer, supported the work of our Healthy Climate and Peace Programs and developed a series of new factsheets on the health impacts of climate change in Oregon, the impacts of nuclear weapons in our state, and the unequal impacts that nuclear weapons have on women, children, indigenous communities, and communities of color.
Bill Yang (above, right), who volunteered on a near-daily basis in our office this summer, assisted with the “parliamentary pledge” campaign and helped get the Portland City Council resolution on nuclear weapons up and running.
Thanks so much to Madison, Erin, Bill, and all of the other volunteers who make our work for a more healthy and peaceful world possible. If you are interested in volunteering with Oregon PSR, please contact us today at [email protected] or 503-274-2720. We look forward to working with you!
