HRC Endorses Anthony Woods for Congress
July 22, 2009
Today the Human Rights Campaign PAC along with the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund announced their endorsement of Anthony Woods for U.S. Congress. Woods, who is running in the September 1, Special Election for California's 10th Congressional District, earned the Bronze Star after serving two tours in Iraq in the U.S. Army. He was honorably discharged after challenging the military’s "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law. Said HRC President Joe Solmonese: "The Human Rights Campaign is proud to endorse Anthony Woods, a veteran of the Iraq war and steadfast advocate for our community, to become the next U.S. Congressman from California's 10th district. Anthony hasn’t just shown his support on issues of LGBT equality, he’s lived them -- especially the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' Anthony's support of marriage equality will also be important as we work to repeal Proposition 8, which stripped marriage rights away for California's same-sex couples. There is no doubt that Anthony will be a role model for LGBT youth, and we applaud his continuing service to our country." For more on the endorsement read HRC's press release, as well as coverage from the Washington Blade and the Advocate.
