Progress In Oregon

Basic Rights Oregon, a GLBT activist organizaiton, applauded recommendations recently made by the state's Governors Task Force on Equality. From the post on the organization's blog:

In a statement released by the Governor's office, Governor Kulongoski said, "This is about basic questions of fairness and equity under the law," said the Governor. "We must continue to strive to make Oregon a state of economic and social opportunity for all of our citizens, regardless of race, gender, religion, age or sexual orientation."

The task force's report is linked in the BRO post if you're interested in details. There's some good work being done in Oregon.

  1. Hi, Jim. Could you send me your email please? I have a storytelling newsletter that will publish a feature tomorrow on the role of story and narrative in shaping attitudes about gay and lesbian concerns and I'd like to send you an announcement. We were in touch some months ago, but now I can't seem to find your email. Thanks. Holly Stevens
