Our most delicious fundraiser of the year! 2012 marks the 13th annual Bites for Rights Event.
On June 21st, 2012, restaurants, coffee shops, bars and bakeries around the state will donate a generous percentage of their day’s proceeds to Basic Rights Oregon. On this one day, you can feast to promote fairness for all LGBT Oregonians.
In 2011 restaurants state-wide took part in Bites for Rights including the Astoria Coffeehouse in Astoria and Left Coast Siesta in Manzanita. Along with Byways Café, Cupcake Jones, The Gilt Club, Crush, Genoa Restaurant, Big Ass Sandwiches and Mother’s Bistro & Bar to name a few from Portland.
Take a stand for equality by going out for coffee, brunch, drinks, dinner and dessert. With your help, we can send a powerful message to business owners that supporting LGBT equality is not only the right thing to do, but it’s good business too! By dining out all day long, YOU can help sustain Basic Rights Oregon’s efforts in transgender justice, racial justice and marriage equality.

Does your business, organization, or community group want to take part in Bites for Rights for your monthly meeting with a restaurant near you?
