Over the past several weeks, HRC Atlanta steering committee leaders have been working to mobilize members and supporters in Atlanta to help get out the vote for Cathy Woolard.
Woolard has spent her life fighting on the front lines for LGBTQ equality across Georgia and has been pivotal in breaking barriers for the LGBTQ community in Atlanta. HRC endorsed Woolard last month and HRC Atlanta is on the ground, standing with Woolard in her bid for election as Atlanta’s next mayor in the November 7 election.
As an Atlanta native, I can tell you that I support Woolard for mayor because I want to protect Atlanta’s reputation as “The City Too Busy to Hate.” Atlanta is one of a handful of cities in the South that earned a perfect 100 on HRC’s Municipal Equality Index. If elected mayor, Woolard will fight every day to ensure we continue moving forward as an inclusive city.
More than any other candidate in this race, Woolard has been fighting for civil rights protections for LGBTQ people in this city for decades. Her tireless work has earned her endorsements from HRC, Georgia Equality, LPAC (the country’s first and only lesbian political action committee) and Victory Fund. Woolard walks the walk, and I’d be proud to see her elected Atlanta’s first openly LGBTQ mayor.
HRC Atlanta will be joining Woolard’s campaign to mobilize HRC members and supporters to the polls for early voting, which starts on October 16, and for Election Day, November 7. If you’re interested in keeping Atlanta moving forward, please sign up to join me and HRC Atlanta at one of our upcoming days of action to support Cathy’s campaign.
