Basic Rights Oregon  Achieving policy victories and shifting public opinion for LGBTQ Oregonians.

We had a blast at Pride Night with the Portland Thorns! Thank you to the Thorns for hosting this incredible event and to all of our supporters who joined us.

Our staff are proud members of AFSCME Local 1790. Today's SCOTUS decision is a step in the wrong direction, but we remain #UnionStrong. We will continue to stand together and fight for fair wages and benefits for all Oregonians.

We're so close to our goal! Can you help us make our $7,500 match by Sunday night? https://bit.ly/2IG1spC

We're about halfway to our May Giving goal! Can you donate today and help us meet our $7,500 match? https://bit.ly/2IG1spC

Congratulations to Val Hoyle, our next state Labor Commissioner! We know she's dedicated to defending the Oregon Equality Act and protecting LGBTQ Oregonians from discrimination. Happy to be celebrating with her tonight.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Fierce Mamas fighting for Transgender equality. (Dads too).

We asked Robert Ruiz of U.S. Bank why it's so important for businesses in Oregon to make a commitment to diversity and inclusion. Here's what he had to say:⠀

"We all come from different places, cultures, backgrounds. We all come with different skills and experiences. We all have different perspectives. And at U.S. Bank, we all come together to create possibilities and act in the best interest of our customers, colleagues, communities and shareholders. Simply put, U.S. Bank is open and welcome to all Oregonians."⠀

A special thanks to Pepino's for helping make our Catalyst transgender leadership retreat such a success. We tried to get a photo of the delicious lunch they provided, but it disappeared too fast!
