More than two decades ago Chris Tanner & Lisa Chickadonz made a courageous stand and were willing to expose their private lives to public and media scrutiny. As a result, thousands of gay and lesbian employees could provide their domestic partners with health insurance.

They made history again last year as plaintiffs in ACLU's lawsuit challenging Oregon's ban on marriages between same-sex couples.

Chris & Lisa were honored at our 2015 Liberty Dinner with the Remington Award which is given to individuals or groups who, by significant personal sacrifice, have contributed to the advancement or defense of civil liberties and civil rights.
