Special Guest Sherman Alexie

Author of several award winning books, Sherman was named one of The New Yorker's 20 top writers for the 21st Century. A gifted orator, he tells tales of contemporary American Indian life laced with razor-sharp humor, unsettling candor and biting wit.

A selection of his books will be available for purchase at the event through Powell's Books and a book signing will immediately follow the dinner program.

Honoring Chris Tanner & Lisa Chickadonz

Strong and gracious advocates for equal rights 

This year we honor Chris and Lisa with the Remington Award given to individuals or groups who, by significant personal sacrifice, have contributed to the advancement or defense of civil liberties and civil rights.

More than two decades ago they 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.
