SAVE THE DATE and RSVP for the 2023 Holiday Brunch with Speaker Dwight Holton
YOU ARE INVITED to join us on Saturday, December 2 at 10:00 am to celebrate the extraordinary members of the League of Women Voters of Clackamas County, whose dedication really Makes Democracy Work in our county and in our state. Please join us for a delicious brunch together with new members and old friends as we welcome our speaker, Dwight Holton, the CEO of Lines for Life, the leading suicide and substance abuse prevention non-profit in the Northwest. stop
Lines for Life helps over 170,000 families a year with its crisis intervention and prevention services. It also promotes healthy kids and communities through mental wellness promotion, advocacy and public policy development. Mr. Holton took the reins at Lines for Life after 15 years as a federal prosecutor, most recently as United States Attorney for Oregon. Through his work as a prosecutor, Mr. Holton learned the importance of early intervention and prevention strategies – and as U.S. Attorney, he launched efforts to improve access to addiction treatment and better mental health services.
Mr. Holton has worked to carry Lines for Life programs and initiatives to diverse communities throughout Oregon – including a satellite YouthLine office opened in Central Oregon in 2019. Holton has also led efforts to expand cultural engagement at Lines for Life – supporting neighborhood empowerment to build better access to mental wellness and crisis intervention services in communities of color. Mr. Holton serves on the boards of Salmon Safe and the Basic Rights Oregon PAC, the Oregon Alcohol and Drug Policy Commission, and supports his kids’ myriad sports teams. Since 2002, he has taught classes at Lewis and Clark Northwestern School of Law in Portland and lives in Southeast Portland with his wife, Mary Ellen Glynn, and their children.
