Planned Parenthood’s Courageous Voice Breakfast
2012 Courageous Voice Breakfast with Valerie Plame Wilson
Portland Art Museum’s Kridel Grand Ballroom
Join us for a special breakfast event with a woman who, as a covert CIA Operations Officer, worked to protect America’s national security and prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Now a bestselling author, Valerie Plame Wilson found herself at the heart of a political firestorm in 2003 when the Bush administration revealed her secret status to a conservative columnist who published her name. She will discuss her autobiography, Fair Game: My Life as a Spy, My Betrayal by the White House, sharing her thoughts on this unprecedented abuse of public trust in an effort to subvert the right of free speech.
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon will also present the second annual Marilyn Epstein Pro-Choice Champion Award to Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown.
