Marriage License Refunds: What to do with $60?

What does $60 buy you?
If you're straight, it buys you over 1,000 rights and privileges through the glories of marriage.
And if you're one of the 3,000+ couples who a year ago paid Multnomah County $60 to enter into this sanctimonious realm that is held so sacred, you're getting your money back.
So what are you going to do with that money?
Are you one of our straight allies who also believes there has been some incredibly sad news for the gay community with Measure 36 and yesterday's Oregon Supreme Court ruling?
Join me and put your money where your mouth is: I'm turning my $60 over to Basic Rights Oregon to help fight the good fight for us in the coming year.

Thank you for posting this lelo. I think it is a great way that we can take action. I am not only turning my $60 lisence refund over to Basic Rights Oregon but have begun soliciting my gay and straight friends alike to do the same in solidarity. Imagine the difference we can make together!
