Basic Rights Education Fund


Ensuring that all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Oregonians experience equality by building a broad, inclusive, politically powerful movement, by shifting public opinion and achieving policy victories.

Bottom Line for Portland

Last year, Basic Rights Education Fund trained 1,200 people in transgender competency and assisted more than 600 community members experiencing anti-LGBTQ discrimination. More than 4,000 people engaged in our advocacy work as supporters, volunteers or activists during a time when transgender rights are under attack.

“As a black transgender woman, Basic Rights has been pivotal to me. As I found out who I am and transitioned, they gave me information, resources and connection to a larger community, through Catalyst, their transgender leadership development cohort.”
