ENEMIES OF EQUALITY MOVING FORWARD ON "RECIPROCAL BENEFITS"

Last week was a tremendous success as we lobbied in favor of SB 1000, but as we work for fairness, we must also fight attempts to undermine equality for all Oregon families.

A few weeks ago we told you how the right's "Reciprocal Benefits" (HB 3476) are being used to block basic civil union protections for same-sex couples and their families.

House republicans have not yet announced a hearing date for HB 3476, but we expect that it will happen soon. We may only receive 48 hours notice of the hearing date and time, so NOW is the time to make arrangements with the boss, spouse, baby sitter, etc. Plan to fill up your car with friends and family and attend the hearing. Tell Oregon lawmakers that reciprocal benefits are unfair, inadequate and insulting.
