Candlelight Vigil Tonight Before The Supreme Court Rules

Join Basic Rights Oregon for a candlelight vigil tonight! Events are taking place in Medford and Salem.

In Salem: 7 p.m.at the Oregon Supreme Court. 1163 State St. in Salem

In Medford: 7:30 p.m.at VOGEL Plaza (Ginger Rogers Theatre) the corner of Central and Main St.

The Oregon Supreme Court announced today that it will issue a ruling tomorrow, Thursday, April 14th in the case of Li V. State of Oregon. Filed last March by Basic Rights Oregon, the ACLU and nine same-sex couples, the Li/Kennedy case could decide whether the Oregon constitution requires the state to make equal benefits and protections for same-sex relationships available via a civil union and whether the approximately 3,000 marriages entered into by same-sex couples in Oregon last year are valid.

Before the decision is handed down, join Basic Rights Oregon this evening at 7 PM outside the Oregon Supreme Court (1163 State St, in Salem) for a community gathering and candlelight vigil.

On the day of the decision, our attorneys will quickly evaluate the court's opinion. We will immediately send you an announcement with our initial impressions. Expect ongoing communication from us throughout Thursday as we further evaluate the decision and plan to join us Thursday night in Portland, Bend, Medford, Salem and Eugene for post-decision events. Locations to be announced Thursday.
