Equal rights for all

Here's some exciting news to lift your spirits today!

The Human Rights Campaign has made it official — they're on Team Merkley for 2020. Will you pitch in and join the movement for equal right for all Americans?

Over the last few years, we've made great progress on equality, but it is outrageous that the doors of opportunity are still slammed shut for LGBTQ Americans in states all across our nation.

I am determined to work with the Human Rights Campaign and with you to throw those doors wide open.

I was honored to lead the successful fight for the Oregon Equality Act in 2007 and equally pleased to do the same for the 2013 Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) in the U.S. Senate.

After working with HRC to craft a national Equality Act, I was thrilled to see the U.S. House pass it last year. But we can't rest until it is also passed by the Senate and signed in the Oval Office.

We're going to keep up the fight for equality and opportunity for all Americans, in every aspect of American life. Will you join us?

Let's never let up until we can ring the bells of freedom long and loud for all Americans!
