Portlandia Club Luncheon May 2016

The Power of Sisterhood – How to Build Sisterhood

“The Power of Sisterhood – How to Build Sisterhood” is the powerful title of the May 5 presentation by Antoinette Edwards.

As a tireless and passionate worker who for the past 30 years has reached out to the most vulnerable populations in our community, Antoinette Edwards has provided leadership, policy development, service provisions, and advocacy for children and families of North, Northeast Portland.

The goal of her presentation is to offer strategies, ideas, and hope for moving toward true alliances between Women of Color and white women, and to improve race relations. By communicating honestly, Antoinette believes we can be Sisters united by shared interests and beliefs, united in our appreciation for diversity, united in our collective efforts to end oppression.

Antoinette co-founded the African American Alliance Community Unity Breakfast and founded the first African American PFLAG Chapter (Parents, Families, Friends, and Allies United with LGBTQ People to move equality forward) in the nation.

Antoinette currently serves as the Director of the Office of Youth Violence Prevention with the City of Portland and works with Mayor Hales and his staff. All of this while being the Mother of 5, godmother to countless others, Babani (grandmother) to 20 and great-grandmother to 2.

As a woman of distinction with numerous awards and honors, Antoinette Edwards is truly a Woman Making a Difference!
