Meet Our Board

Debra Dority, JD, Attorney Oregon Law Center, Chair of the Board, Board Governance Committee. 

I joined the Sexual Assault Resource Center board because sexual assault is an epidemic and SARC provides the necessary support and assistance to help victims of sexual assault become survivors. SARC does amazing work and I am proud to say I am a member of the board of directors. Member since 2009.

 

Eleanor Laws, JD, Administrative Law Judge with the National Labor Relations Board, Vice Chair of the Board, Board Governance Committee

I choose to serve on SARC’s board because I want to use my legal training and skills beyond earning my paycheck. If my service helps SARC function more smoothly, this enables the volunteers and dedicated employees of SARC to help survivors heal and ultimately achieve their goals. I serve because I am able to, and that is a privilege. I hope SARC can help survivors reach this same place and beyond. Member since 2012.

 

Tyler Reimann,CPA, Property Management Accountant, Chair of the Finance Committee

I chose to serve on SARC’s board because I believe strongly in advocating for the rights of survivors of sexual assault. This organization has a strong reputation of standing with survivors in their time of need, while expecting nothing in return. SARC addresses sexual assault as a public health problem that is larger than any one incident and I am proud to stand behind that message. Member since 2012.
