On Wednesday the Ready For Hillary PAC staged its first-ever LGBT-specific fundraiser in Washington DC. Justin Snow reports at Metro Weekly:
Equipped with a photo booth that included a cardboard cutout of Clinton, Wednesday’s LGBT fundraiser, proposed by D.C. activist Lane Hudson, marked the first of many. Ready for Hillary staffers say 2014 will see an increase in grassroots organizing by the super PAC. According to Lisa Changadveja, who was named Ready for Hillary’s LGBT Americans director in September, the group will be at more than 30 Pride festivals during the next year. “We’re going to be where the LGBT community is. Our organization knows the LGBT community is a very important community to organize,” Changadveja told Metro Weekly, noting Ready for Hillary’s first five hires are focused on black, young, Latino, LGBT and women voters. “We know it’s important to organize these constituents early because that’s how Obama did it in 2008 and 2012 — he organized from the ground up.”
Ready For Hillary PAC has raised $4M since its creation in January 2013.
