Los Angeles – Equality California, California’s largest statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, released the following statement on the announcement that Hillary Clinton is a candidate for President of the United States.
“We asked her to run, and now that she has entered the race, Equality California will pull out all the stops to help her win,” said Equality California executive director Rick Zbur. “Electing Hillary Clinton as our next President is one of the most important things we can do to advance LGBT equality and acceptance. Throughout her career, Sec. Clinton has been a champion for the LGBT community. Not only is the Supreme Court at stake, but her election is crucial to backstop the potential targeting of our community by the current anti-equality Congress.”
On March 16, Equality California became the nation’s first major LGBT organization to endorse Hillary Clinton. With 800,000 members, Equality California is America’s second largest LGBT civil rights organization and has launched “EQCA for Hillary,” a grassroots campaign to mobilize its members to support her candidacy and help her win.
