Measure 9 Anniversary

November 3, 2012 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Twenty years after Oregonians defeated an anti-gay ballot measure for the first time, local advocates plan to mark the event with speeches, a documentary and a get-out-the-vote effort for the freedom to marry in Washington.

Oregon has faced more anti-gay measures than any other state, but in 1992, equality supporters successfully organized and for the first time defeated an anti-gay ballot measure. Measure 9 would have forced schools and the state government to go out of their way to discriminate.

Join us in celebration of this historic victory that galvanized our movement in the northwest:
