Over the past few years, we’ve seen some major LGBTQ victories here in Oregon. We’ve strengthened anti-discrimination protections, streamlined the process for birth certificate changes, and even gotten state agencies to add non-binary gender options to government forms.
But despite all our progress, our work is far from over. With so many challenges to LGBTQ equality on the federal level, it’s now more important than ever that our state continue to be a leader on progressive issues.
And we know that to do that, our state lawmakers need to hear directly from members of the community who have the most at stake.
That’s why, on March 28, we’re hosting a Queer Town Hall at Portland State University. We’ve invited our friends and allies from Salem to hear your opinions and answer your questions – featuring our state’s incredible queer legislators and legislators of color!
Our guests include:
Representative Diego Hernandez
Representative Karin A. Power
House Speaker Tina Kotek
Representative Teresa Alonso León
Senator Lew Frederick
Representative Rob Nosse
Representative Tawna D. Sanchez
Senator James I. Manning Jr.
