IT'S TIME: Moving Ahead in the Legislature

After years of defensive battles with little forward movement in the fight for equality, this is the year that the Oregon Legislature must act to ensure fairness for all Oregonians.

The bottom line is: basic rights for sexual minorities need to be addressed right now, whether it is discrimination in housing, employment, education, or accommodation or discrimination against same-sex couples who lack adequate legal recognition and protection for their committed relationships.

While BRO has already introduced legislation in both the House and the Senate, we also continue to pursue every available avenue for getting lawmakers to focus on our entire legislative agenda. We could do it with one bill and one vote. Or we may have to lobby piece by piece. Regardless of which path we take, we need to have you there with us: stronger, more visible and more committed than ever before to doing whatever it takes to achieve equality. Stick with us, and we'll make sure you're the first to know about new developments in Salem.
