|You’ve been with us for all the major victories.|
From passing the country’s first standalone transgender justice bill to passing model suicide prevention policy for Oregon’s school districts through Adi’s Act, you’ve helped us ensure that LGBTQ lives are supported and respected.
Now, we’re working to ban the Trans Panic Defense in Oregon and we need your help.
By banning the Trans Panic Defense, it will prohibit people who harass, assault, or kill trans people in our state from saying they did so out of fear or “panic” upon learning their victim was trans. It’s a clear, impactful way of showing that trans lives matter.

|I’ve seen the importance and impact of these legislative victories when I was helping the Justice for Nikki coalition, named in memory of Nikki Kuhnhausen who died from anti-trans violence in Vancouver, Washington. Working with Nikki’s family and community members, we helped pass a Trans Panic Defense ban in Nikki’s name in Washington state. We know we can achieve the same victory in Oregon with your help.|
Thank you for always working alongside us,
