OSU-Cascades business instructor Erika McAlpine will also speak, along with activist and former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and others.

On Thursday, Unlocked Films (local filmmaker Jesse Locke's new production company) will screen "7Hills," a documentary about a skatepark in Amman, Jordan that serves as a safe place for hundreds of refugee children to play.

The Muse Salon Series kicks off Friday morning, including a panel discussion on the topic, "How We Feed Our Community," featuring Central Oregon women contributing to the local food systems.
