HRC Oregon & SW Washington Attends SO Pride

On the weekend of October 13th, members of the HRC Oregon & Southwest Washington Steering Committee were able to visit our friends and allies down in Ashland for this year's Southern Oregon Pride weekend. Joining SO Pride for the first time, our attending members were overwhelmed by  the warm reception and enthusiasm for supporting our common struggle for equality. HRC was pleased to help kick off the weekend in attendance at  the SO Pride Ball on Friday evening, which fueled the mood for the next day's Pride Parade down Main Street. After the parade, the HRC booth spent a busy afternoon at the Lithia Park festival greeting our friends in Southern Oregon and was delighted by the enthusiastic support that was received that day in the form of memberships and contributions.  This year has seen a larger push by the Oregon Steering Committee to reach out and connect better with our allies around the larger Oregon State area, and events like this have proven to be both valuable and rewarding. We eagerly look forward to attending next year!
