Marriage Road Trip: Building a majority one town at a time!
Basic Rights Oregon is building a majority for marriage, talking to our friends and neighbors about why marriage matters. We need your help to maintain the momentum we’ve created and build a solid majority for the freedom to marry across Oregon. That’s why we’re traveling all across the state this spring to connect with community leaders and set a course for the road ahead. Want to host a Majority for Marriage Community Conversation in your town? Want to know if we’re scheduled to visit your community soon? Contact Mike@basicrights.orgfor more information.
We are so excited to be able to connect with community leaders all across the state who have been at the forefront of building a majority for marriage here in Oregon for such a long time.
“Even though we’re registered, our Oregon Domestic Partnership documents don’t apply anywhere else. Some states have their own laws for civil unions, domestic partnerships, or civil marriage—and many have no provision for gay unions of any kind. The issue of marriage equality is both very personal and very political—not partisan, but affecting the core of the American political process,” said Jeanne St.John, Ph.D. & Kae Bates, RN, MS, Newport, OR PFLAG Chapter leaders.
The first three stops on our statewide tour will be Ashland and Grants Pass and Klamath Falls. Then we will head to Newport, Astoria and Corvallis. For more information, please go to our event calendar. The events are free and open to the public.
