Ahead of the vice presidential debate yesterday, Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) stopped by HRC’s phone bank in its Washington, D.C., headquarters.
Congressman Beyer, a longtime supporter of LGBTQ equality, inspired the volunteers by highlighting the importance of this election and what is at stake for the LGBTQ community in November. Congressman Beyer, as well as presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Senator Tim Kaine, are staunch advocates of the Equality Act and marriage equality, and oppose laws like North Carolina’s discriminatory HB2.
HRC launched its #turnOUT the vote campaign earlier this year and is hosting phone banks across the America to mobilize voters to Vote Equality in 2016. HRC will be calling voters in key swing states to encourage them to support candidates who fully support LGBTQ equality up and down the ballot.
HRC is currently calling voters encouraging them to register to vote, and to vote early where it is possible. And it’s easy – just go to hrc.org/vote to register to vote, check your voter registration status, or update your status.
HRC wants to keep you informed leading up to November. Take the pledge to support pro-LGBTQ candidates and receive important election updates from us and to help #turnOUT the vote.
