Voice for Equality: Ron Wyden

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (OR-D) has been standing up for Oregon in the U.S. Senate since 1996. Throughout his public service, Senator Wyden has earned a reputation as an independent voice for Oregonians and the nation, offering creative, common-sense solutions on issues that make a real difference in people’s lives.

He has openly challenged anti-gay military polices saying, “At a time when our military is scrambling to find qualified recruits, the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy makes absolutely no sense and undermines the fight against terrorism.” Wyden said. “These patriotic and courageous men and women who want to serve our country ought to be allowed to do so.”

He voted against the amendment to enshrine marriage discrimination into the US Constitution and is recognized by eQuality Giving as supporting Marriage Equality.
