50th Anniversary of the March on Washington

Join Us in Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington


Basic Rights Oregon will join the Albina Ministerial Alliance and community partners to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.  This event will coincide with the national event in Washington, D.C., bringing together local activists & communities in solidarity with the ongoing Civil Rights movement.

A core part of Basic Rights Oregon’s work & values around racial justice is to take action and show strong support from LGBT communities for our partners. We are in a critical moment both nationally and locally to fight against constant attacks on justice and safety.

The issues that compelled the 1963 March of Washington for Jobs and Freedom, including lack of economic opportunity and police brutality, are still the pressing issues for communities of color and LGBT people of color today.

Join us for the march & bring a friend!
