Basic Rights Education
Basic Rights Education Fund will ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Oregonians experience equality by building a broad and inclusive politically powerful movement, shifting public opinion, and achieving policy victories.
Bottom Line for Portland
In the past year we helped pass bills banning the LGBTQ Panic Defense in Oregon and ensuring that transgender people are protected from discrimination under state law. We also delivered almost 100 transgender inclusion trainings to Oregon employers and assisted over 500 people experiencing anti-LGBTQ discrimination.
“The work that BRO does helps protect vulnerable members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community get more of the legal protections they need to thrive, ensuring things like the trans panic defense cannot be used against us.” Erin Waters, Black and Beyond the Binary
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
As an organization whose mission is to ensure equality for a historically marginalized group, diversity, equity and inclusion work is at the heart of everything we do. We serve all LGBTQ Oregonians with an intentional focus on racial and transgender justice.
