Basic Rights Equality PAC is a state political action committee affiliated with Basic Rights Oregon. Basic Rights Equality PAC works to elect fair-minded candidates into public office, including local, state, and legislative offices.

Over the past decade we have helped elect pro-equality leaders including Governor Kitzhaber and former Governor Kulongoski, Secretary of State Kate Brown, House Democratic Leader Tina Kotek and dozens of state and local elected officials.
