Back to Basic Rights Oregon

Just 17 days left to take action for LGBT youth!

Just last week, the Oregon Safe Schools Act (House Bill 2599) was introduced, and legislators are already waiting to hear from their constituents.

By now, you know that LGBT youth are twice as likely as straight students to be the target of bullying. And you know that Oregon's LGBT youth are five times more likely to attempt suicide--nearly twice the national average.

What you may not know is that the campaign to win Safe Schools is officially in high gear--and we need you now. The Day of Action provides a unique opportunity to talk directly to your legislator, and to voice your concerns to the people who can make the change that youth across Oregon need.

In 2005 and 2007, hundreds of Oregonians rallied for domestic partnerships and nondiscrimination protections. This year, we'll join together to make sure the next generation of LGBT youth can live safe and healthy lives. Let's gather together in record numbers to make a difference that will last a lifetime.

Best,

Aubrey Harrison
Field Organizer
