Regional Event Series

Summer 2013


Basic Rights Oregon is building equality across Oregon this summer! We are travelling across the state talking to Oregonians about trans-inclusive health care, racial justice and expanding support for the freedom to marry. Together, we are building a politically-powerful movement for LGBT Oregonians!

Join us for an afternoon of delicious light bites, refreshing beverages and entertainment in our Summer garden party series. Jeana Frazzini, Executive Director of Basic Rights Oregon, will also provide the most up to date information about our work and how folks can get more involved as we move forward with LGBT equality statewide! And special guest, Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown will also be in attendance!
