About 30 Years Later: Lessons of Ballot Measure 9

30 Years Later: Lessons of Ballot Measure 9

On Sunday, July 17, join Gay and Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest (GLAPN), Q Center, Western States Center and Rural Organizing Project, for a night filled with education, lessons and reuniting over the 1992 fight against Ballot Measure 9.

Ian Morton, Executive Director of the Q Center, will facilitate a panel of activists and historians: 

Kathleen Saadat, Pat Young, Anne Galisky and Ramón Ramirez will discuss Ballot Measure 9 and how lessons from organizing against hate in 1992 can inform our contemporary lives. 

Holly Pruett from Western States Center will showcase their digital history exhibit: "No on 9 Remembered," telling 30 stories of the grassroots mobilization that defeated the measure; and Rural Organizing Project will display their traveling exhibit: "Bridging Divides, Defending Dignity: How rural Oregonians have moved democracy forward since 1992!" which features human dignity group victories and lessons from ROP's 30 years of organizing. 

Doors open at 4:00pm, program begins at 5:00pm and runs until 6:30pm with a social hour and exhibit viewing afterwards. Refreshments for purchase will be available. 

This event is FREE but registration is strongly suggested to ensure a place. The option to donate is available to support future GLAPN programming.

This program has been supported in part by Don't Shoot PDX Liberated Archives project. Thank you!
