The 13th Annual Bites for Rights is coming to a restaurant or several near you June 21st. Eat out at any of the participating restaurants listed here and a large portion of the profits go to support Basic Rights Oregon, an organization "dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity," if you haven't heard. The list of participating establishments is particularly extensive this year, with cafes, bars, and food carts joining the cause alongside many restaurants. The benefit lasts all day, so even if you're on a budget you can simply grab a cup of coffee or a tall boy at a spot near you and send a message to local business owners! Spend responsibly, Portland, we're lucky to have opportunities like this to change our community for the better... and it's not like it's unpleasant to do so with the participating talent this year.
