EqualityPAC – Sidebar
The Basic Rights Oregon Equality PAC (Political Action Committee), seeks to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in Oregon by electing fair-minded candidates to all levels of office.
Basic Rights Oregon’s Equality PAC is a non-partisan political action committee (PAC) dedicated to electing pro-equality elected officials. We focus on statewide and legislative offices, where we are proud to re-endorse incumbents who have a 100% pro-equality voting record. For first-time candidates in these races, our all-volunteer PAC board members interview candidates and issue endorsements in select races.
While we do not have the resources to conduct a statewide local race program in all local races (city and county) across Oregon, we do issue “green lights” to qualifying candidates in many Portland metro-area and other local races.
Your contribution to the Basic Rights Equality PAC goes directly to electing fair-minded candidates who support equality. The Basic Rights Equality PAC has a proven track record of making a significant difference in statewide and legislative races.
Your donation to the Equality PAC is eligible for the Oregon Political Tax Credit of up to $50 per person or $100 per couple filing jointly. Your donation will be credited directly to your state taxes this year – thereby reducing your taxes or increasing your refund by the same amount you contribute.
