It takes all of our participation to shift a culture. Here at Training for Warriors Portland, we are going to lead the way. Our mission is to promote equality and fitness (sometimes at the same time!)
Thanks so much to everyone who have contributed to our fundraising campaigns for the Southern Poverty Law Center and Sexual Assault Resource Center!
On April 22nd, we are doing it again. Come get an ass-kicking workout AND give back to the causes you believe in. We will be donating all proceeds to Basic Rights Oregon.
A little about BRO:
Their mission: "Basic Rights Oregon will ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Oregonians experience equality by building a broad and inclusive politically powerful movement, shifting public opinion, and achieving policy victories. Basic Rights Oregon is a member of the Equality Federation."
"Basic Rights Oregon is the primary policy advocacy organization for LGBTQ Oregonians. As such, we advocate for public policy that meets the needs of a breadth of our LGBTQ communities. Our policies are constructed with a deep understanding of what they will mean to LGBTQ communities of color, transgender communities, LGBTQ youth and LGBTQ people in every corner of the state."
The workout begins at 11am and is for all fitness levels. Even if you have not worked out in a while, you will leave sweating and smiling. Stay for food and drink afterwards... and feel free to bring a treat to share.
The event is family and dog friendly, as usual!
We are requesting a $20 donation-- all proceeds benefit Basic Rights Oregon
Can't make it? Don't fret: you can donate here, or directly through us to avoid extra fees.
See you there!
If you are interested in getting involved with Basic Rights Oregon, there are so many ways!
