Mark Johnson Roberts: An Oregon Trailblazer

Last Month, the Oregon State Bar unveiled its diversity storyboard exhibit; a wall-sized timeline that tracks 100 years of challenges and success for minority lawyers and judges in Oregon. As a follow-up to that event, the Oregonian featured our own Mark Johnson Roberts in a slideshow of “a few Oregon State Bar members who helped create a more diverse justice system by serving as pioneers in some way.” Mark’s piece recognizes that he was not only the first openly LGBT president of the Oregon State Bar when elected in 2006, but he became the first openly LGBT president of any state bar association in the country. An Oregon trailblazer? We certainly think so! To view the digital slideshow click HERE.
