HRC Congratulates Pro-Equality Senator Collins on Election Victory

by Stephen Peters

WASHINGTON– The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, tonight congratulated U.S. Senator Susan Collins of Maine on her re-election. HRC President Chad Griffin issued the following statement:

"Senator Collins has more than earned this new term in the United States Senate. As a leading supporter of efforts to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’, guarantee workplace protections for all Americans, and implement a strong federal hate crimes law, she has made a real difference in the lives of LGBT Mainers and their families. I am eager to continue our work together over these next six years as HRC fights to pass a comprehensive LGBT civil rights bill that will finally guarantee LGBT Americans equal non-discrimination protections under federal law."

The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. HRC envisions a world where LGBT people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.
