Basic Rights Oregon: The Movement
Activists awakened by anti GLBT campaigns formed Basic Rights Oregon with the vision to build a movement that could defend against attacks, as well as a pro-active movement that brought real change to the state of Oregon. Since 2000, Basic Rights Oregon has built a diverse movement made up of GLBT folks, straight-allies, rural and urban Oregonians, business leaders, clergy, elected officials, educators, parents, and more as well as coalition partners in labor, healthcare, reproductive choice, civil liberties, and racial justice organizations. The power of the Basic Rights Oregon movement has created real change in Oregon.
