Welcome to the Columbia Gorge Women’s Action Network.

CGWAN was founded by two friends in mid-November 2016, in response to the misogyny, bigotry, and intolerance that permeated the U.S. presidential campaign. Since then, CGWAN has blossomed into a strong and supportive network of activists working locally to protect democracy, human rights for all, free and fair media, and a safe environment.

We strive to amplify the voices, knowledge, and leadership of women and gender non-conforming people, and to channel our collective energies into meaningful action.
