Since President Trump’s July 26th tweet about a transgender military ban, our founder and transgender Air Force veteran, Shannon Scott, has been approached by various local organizations for her response to the discrimination, including an interview with The Statesman Journal. We are also proud to share her discussion with Basic Rights Oregon (BRO) here. Through this interview with the state’s largest LGBTQ rights group, Shannon has issued a call to action: “I want to challenge everyone who is reading this. Talk is one thing, and communication is important. But action is how we get things to change. So I challenge each and every one of you to do something. Not just talk. Go out there and raise funds or volunteer. Because action is more powerful than words.”
We hope you will join us in the fight for LGBTQ equality!
