Nike voices support for gay marriage in Oregon

Posted: Updated:
BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

Nike has announced that it supports a same-sex marriage initiative for Oregon and it has assembled a political action committee to raise money for the cause.

So far, the Nike Equality PAC has $280,000, including a $100,000 contribution from Nike Inc.

The announcement isn't completely unexpected; the company also supported Washington's gay marriage initiative when that state went through a similar vote.

Several other Oregon companies and sports teams have also voiced support for gay marriage, including Columbia Sportswear, the Trail Blazers, the Timbers and the Thorns.
