The Pacific Northwest has been a source of inspiration to countless writers, yet the voices ultimately heard above the din do not exemplify the great diversity of peoples living in this region nor do they reflect the varied content of their interests, passions, and priorities – what ultimately makes us a community.   Old Growth Northwest began its work to empower people whose voices are only heard on the periphery – people who are marginalized because of their ethnic background, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation, or other elements of individual identity which limit opportunities for telling one’s unique story.  Since its founding, Old Growth has engaged in core programming that focuses on improved community access: low-cost points of entry, tailored outreach, and meeting community members in the neighborhoods where they live, work, and play.
