Evan Wolfson, the executive director of the nationwide organization Freedom To Marry, will speak tonight at Portland State University about the evolving nation-wide attitudes about same-sex couples.

Time Magazine named Wolfson "one of the 100 most influential people in the world" in 2004. He is the author of Why Marriage Matters: America, Equality, and Gay People's Right to Marry. His appearance is in conjunction with the start of Basic Rights Oregon's education campaign on marriage equality. BRO hopes to start a public conversation on marriage values to build support for a marriage equality ballot measure in time for the 2012 election.

Wolfson's speech will be at 6 p.m., Monday, Nov. 2, at the Smith Memorial Student Union, Vanport Room (#338), Portland State University. No cost! For a map of the campus, click here.
