Rhode Island, Delaware, and Minnesota. All these states extended the freedom to marry to every loving, committed couple in the past few weeks.
Now it's Oregon's turn. And it will take all of us to make it happen.
Join us for our Summer of Love kickoff to step up our campaign to win marriage right here at home. You’ll get an up-to-the minute campaign update and launch the community conversation with fellow Oregonians.
Volunteers like you will help us collect the thousands of signatures required to put the marriage equality measure on the ballot in November 2014--and we may be able to start gathering signatures sooner than we originally expected!
It’s the beginning of Pride month—a perfect time to tell our stories and change hearts and minds. Don’t forget to bring a friend!

Gotta share! I had so much fun at SpringFest, Washco Dems first fund raiser of the year on Cinco de Mayo - May 5th. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici was our special guest speaker and Brad Avakian keynoted. The band Onda Norte brought their Latino music - once they started playing, our guests couldn't help but have a good time! Special thanks to Plumbers & Steamfitters Local 290 - their union hall was the perfect location. The Mexican food menu was the creation of Dalton's and had something for everyone. The raffle prize was a Peruvian Dinner prepared by Luis and Dorila Nava and the lucky winner was Jon McWilliams.
