Basic Rights Oregon is a 501(c)(4) organization, focusing primarily on policy and legislative changes that contribute to a more fair and equal Oregon. The 2014 passage of healthcare for transgender Oregonians on OHP and 2007's historic domestic partnership and anti-discrimination legislation are prime examples of the work of Basic Rights Oregon.
Donations to Basic Rights Oregon are the most flexible gifts for us to use, but because we lobby the legislature and hold politicians accountable, these donations ARE NOT tax-deductible.
