From our beginning in 1996, Basic Rights Oregon has been 100% dependent on voluntary contributions. It’s through our donors’ generous, passionate support that we’ve been able to achieve the legislative and policy gains that make Oregon the second most LGBTQ friendly state in the nation. We’re pleased to recognize the 2017-2018 members of the Basic Rights Oregon Equality Circle. Your generosity makes it possible to advance our work for LGBTQ equality and we thank you for your investment.
