Via press release from the Human Rights Campaign:
Today, HRC announced its endorsement of Joe Biden for President. HRC’s Board of Directors, comprised of 26 community leaders from across the nation, unanimously and enthusiastically voted to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden for President of the United States. The endorsement comes on the 8th Anniversary of Biden’s endorsement of marriage equality in an interview on Meet the Press.
“Vice President Joe Biden is the leader our community and our country need at this moment,” said HRC President Alphonso David. “His dedication to advancing LGBTQ equality, even when it was unpopular to do so, has pushed our country and our movement forward. This November, the stakes could not be higher. Far too many LGBTQ people, and particularly those who are most vulnerable, face discrimination, intimidation, and violence simply because of who they are and who they love.
“But rather than have our backs, Donald Trump and Mike Pence have spent the last three and a half years rolling back and rescinding protections for LGBTQ people. Joe Biden will be a president who stands up for all of us. HRC and our more than three million members and supporters will work day and night to ensure he is the next President of the United States.”
.@JoeBiden has fought for the LGBTQ community throughout his career — which is why @HRC will fight with everything we have and mobilize Equality Voters to elect him as the next president of the United States. https://t.co/wAhu2IMjay pic.twitter.com/jGhfRZhxw2
