Vigils for the freedom to marry
April 22 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Oregon is ready for the freedom to marry!
It’s taken years of hard work, support and enthusiasm, but Oregon is closer than ever to winning marriage all loving, committed couples in our state. On April 23rd, a federal judge will hear oral arguments in a lawsuit filed by the ACLU of Oregon and Basic Rights Oregon that would strike down our state’s marriage ban.
These arguments—and this case—are historic. On the night before oral arguments, join hundreds of Oregonians at one of seven vigils across the state—and together, we’ll send a powerful message: Oregon is ready for marriage. (Newport – just added!)
