Adidas Endorses Oregon Marriage Equality Initiative

Written by 



Adidas joints in the list of big supporters which endorses the effort to repeal the marriage equality ban, the 'Freedom to Marry and Religious Protection Initiative', in Oregon.

After the Portland Timbers, the Portland Trail Blazers and the Portland Business Alliance, Adidas America also shows its support for equality and the religious liberty which would allow a legalization of same-sex marriage in Oregon.

"Marriage is an important, individual choice that should be extended to everyone," said Adidas America Vice President Paul Ehrlich in a statement. "It is time to recognize this important human right by affirming the freedom to marry for same-sex couples in Oregon. Inclusion and diversity are important tenets for our company and employees and we want to extend those values across this state."

LGBT groups currently work to put marriage equality on the November 2014 ballot.
