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 state legislative and statewide offices, where we are proud to re-endorse candidates who have a 100% pro-equality voting record. For non-incumbents in these races, our all-volunteer PAC board members interview candidates and issues endorsements in some but not all, races. We do not have the resources to research all local races (city and county) in Oregon, but we issue “green lights” to qualifying candidates in Portland, Eugene and Salem local races. We do not evaluate “green light” races for campaign competency, financial viability or electability, instead, we only a review local races for policy issues related to equality.
