Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced this morning that she intends to remain a key member of Democratic leadership on the Hill through the next Congress. Pelosi has been a tremendous advocate for our community, and she’s played a leading role in advancing historic legislation – including the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act and the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Pelosi also is an outspoken advocate for funding critical HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention programs. 

HRC looks forward to working with Pelosi for years to come. Her continued leadership will mean that the cares and concerns of all LGBT people will remain a priority for her caucus on the Hill.
