Why We Need You in Order to Win in the Oregon Legislature

At the beginning of the 2005 legislative session, we set out to pass The Oregon Basic Fairness Act (HB 2519) and enact Civil Unions. And our efforts have just begun.

Don't believe those who say it can't be done or those who say we have already failed. They're wrong and we want you to help us prove it.

We have our challenges ahead of us, but we also have opportunities. A number of avenues continue to exist for introducing civil union legislation this session. Lawmakers are allowed priority bills that can be introduced at any time in the session and we know that our allies in the legislature have made our goals thier priority.

We are everywhere we need to be to make change happen in the Oregon Legislature this year.

But we can not do it alone. The efforts of an organization are only effective when paired with the committment from each of us, as individuals, to act.

Have you written to your legislators?
Have you attended a town hall with your lawmakers?
Have you gone to Salem to meet with your representatives?

If not, do it now! Contact us--and we'll help make it happen! Better yet, also encourage others to get involved.

Each of us has friends, family members, coworkers and neighbors who care about these issues, but haven't yet turned thier values into action.

Email this link to those that you know. Ask them to lend their voice to our collective struggle. Ask them to join our email list and get involved.

Now is the time. The more voices lawmakers hear, the more difficult it becomes for them to ignore the call of conscience and do the right thing.
