 hundred years ago, in 1917, the State of Oregon passed legislation to establish the Board of Eugenics. The board, made up of superintendents of state hospitals, mental institutions, and prisons, was charged with evaluating and ordering the sterilization of
 “all persons, male or female who are insane, feeble-minded, epileptic, habitual criminals, moral degenerates and sexual perverts who are or are apt to become, in his opinion, a menace to society.” Oregon was one of 33 states to enact eugenics law. Between
 1917 and its repeal in 1983 there were 2,648 individuals sterilized in the state. During his formal apology in 2002, Governor John Kitzhaber declared December 10th as Human Rights Day in Oregon and stated, “as we celebrate the progress we’ve made, we must
 also acknowledge the realities that darken the history of our state institutions.” To learn more about eugenics in Oregon, visit our curated
