SALEM,OREGON CELEBRATES THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF DEFEAT OF ANTI-GAY BALLOT MEASURE 9

There will be a free screening of the award-winning documentary, "Ballot Measure 9" on Wednesday March 28th at Louck Auditorium (Salem Library).

If you were in Oregon in 1992 you will remember this campaign. It was the Oregon Citizen's Alliance initiative that was a vicious attack on the LGBT community. Our response galvanized our community and its allies. It also was the beginning of union involvement in fighting these types of initiatives. Particularly SEIU503 which took on this fight as its own.

This presentation is sponsored by the Salem Human Rights And Relations Advisory Commission. Following the film there will be a panel discussion.
