Ryun Yu (Gordon Hirabayashi, “Hold These Truths”), and Jeanne Sakata (playwright, “Hold These Truths”)

I was fortunate to not only be introduced to one of Oregon’s “Treasures” but I had an opportunity to sit and visit with Eleanor Rice Davis a few days ago. If it weren’t for Mom 2.0 (aka Jean Matsumoto) and playwright Jeanne Sakata, I probably would have missed this opportunity to visit Oregon-Treasure, Eleanor Rice Davis.
 
I’ll write and provide more soon, but I wanted to post this since it’s fresh.
 
Eleanor R. Davis is one of Oregon’s most influential women. Davis’ work on the advancement of women in Oregon is unparalleled.
 
This includes her involvement in groups such as:
– Task Force on Sex Discrimination in Education
– State Advisory Council on Sex Discrimination in Employment
– Oregon Council for Women’s Equality
– American Association of University Women
– Unitarian Church
– Other civil rights-related commissions and task forces, including Eleanor’s encouraging to Gordon Hirabayashi for which we are eternally grateful.
 
Eleanor, Thank you for the Passion the Drives You.
Never Give Up = Ganbatte!
