SB 1000: We Demand a Vote on Now! ACCEPT NO EXCUSES!

ACCEPT NO EXCUSES:
We Demand a Vote on SB 1000 Now!


Together, we began this legislative session with a goal to put an end to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in Oregon and protect the relationships and families of same-sex couples equally under the law.

Since then, hundreds and hundreds of Oregonians have traveled from across Oregon to rally on the capitol steps and testify in support of SB 1000 during hearing after hearing.

Nearly 20,000 individual emails, letters, faxes and personal visits have been made by you to legislators from every district in the state.

Oregon newspaperslarge and smallhave commended the courage of lawmakers who began the legislative session as champions of SB 1000 and called on the legislature take seriously their moral responsibility to make the bill the law this session.

Despite the most visible lobbying the legislature has ever seen on these issue, despite overwhelming support across the state and plenty of opportunity to pass this bill (not to mention many promises of an impending vote), MONTHS have gone by without a full vote on the Senate floor and the legislative session is rapidly coming to a close.

We still have the opportunity to pass SB 1000 this session, but only if the Senate puts and end to its stalling and puts SB 1000 to a vote immediately. We've been assured that the Senate will vote on SB 1000 Wednesday. Let's be there to hold the Senate to it's word.


Come to Salem Wednesday, July 6th!
Send a Message to the Senate:
No Excuses. No Delays. Vote on SB 1000 Now!
