Dine out on June 20th and 25% of Back to Eden Sales will go to Basic Rights Oregon

Posted on Jun 2, 2013



For the second year in a row Back to Eden is proud to partner with Basic Rights Oregon for their 14th annual Bites for Rights fundraising campaign on June 20th. If you aren’t familiar with Basic Rights Oregon, we would like to introduce this influential organization that works to promote equality throughout Oregon. BRO is an organization that was formed in 1996 to sustain and strengthen Oregon’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) rights movement. Since it’s inception, BRO has passed two landmark laws to establish Domestic Partnerships and ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. BRO’s mission is to ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Oregonian’s experience equality by building a broad and inclusive politically powerful movement, shifting public opinion, and achieving policy victories. Because of the work of Basic Rights Oregon, Oregonians are more educated on the movement for equality of all Oregonians. Back to Eden could not be more proud to support an organization that does so much to promote an ideology of tolerance, love, equality and respect.

To help fund the important work of Basic Rights Oregon, Back to Eden is participating in their 14th annual Bites for Rights campaign. We could not think of a better (or tastier!) way to involve our business, our community, and our customers in helping raise awareness for equality for all Oregonians. On June 20th, 25% of all our sales will go to help fund BRO’s campaigns for transgender and racial justice and marriage equality. We hope that you will stop in for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and/or a treat and feel good that a quarter of your purchase going to a worthy cause. We will be participating with over 100 other businesses across Oregon that are standing together to raise awareness and support for the LGBT community.

We hope that you mark your calendars, and dine out all day on June 20th! For every meal, drink, dessert, or product you purchase, you will be standing with us. Not only will you be dining on scrumptious food, but you will be sure that every bite is going to support the equal rights of all Oregonians.
