Celebrate Open Records Victories with SPJ Oregon

This t-shirt features the text of the First Amendment on the back. This item and many others are up for auction to support SPJ Oregon’s ongoing open records reform efforts.  

The Oregon Territory chapter has done some excellent work this year towards reforming Oregon’s open records laws. To celebrate, the chapter is throwing a Victory Party on Tuesday, September 26 at Kell’s Irish Pub in Portland. The event will also serve as a fundraiser to help support the chapter’s ongoing efforts in open records legislative reform.

You can bid on some sweet items, including Portland Timbers tickets, wine, gift baskets, and more at SPJ Oregon’s Facebook page through Monday, September 26, but final bids take place at the event.

If you want to help but can’t make the event, the chapter is always accepting donations. SPJ Oregon has raised more than $1,700 for this cause. Let’s see if we can get them to their $10,000 goal. Donate here.

To read a recap of why the chapter is celebrating (seriously, its members have had won some big battles in open government reforms), read this SPJ Oregon blog post.
