COLUMBUS, OHIO — Today, the Human Rights Campaign PAC (HRC PAC) announced its endorsement of Ohio Supreme Court Justice Jennifer L. Brunner, Judge Terri Jamison and Judge Marilyn Zayas to the Ohio Supreme Court.
HRC PAC is committed to engaging our volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the 2 million Equality Voters in Ohio in support of these candidates, as well as Nan Whaley for governor, U.S. Senate candidate Tim Ryan, and other pro-equality candidates up and down the ballot.
Human Rights Campaign Associate Regional Campaign Director Al Snodgrass released the following statement today:
“Every family and every child deserves the same protections as everyone else – to live their lives with safety, dignity, and privacy, and free from discrimination. But today, 29 states, including Ohio, lack comprehensive protections for LGBTQ+ people. This means that LGBTQ+ Ohioans are at risk of discrimination in a variety of areas, such as housing, transportation and retail services.
The Human Rights Campaign is proud to endorse Justice Jennifer L. Brunner, Judge Terri Jamison and Judge Marilyn Zayas for election to the Ohio Supreme Court. We know they will support LGBTQ+ equality and will make our state a better, more welcoming state for all who live here.”
HRC’s Commitment to Ohio
Equality Voters, including the two million in Ohio, are a voting bloc of demographically and geographically diverse Americans who are united by the advancement of LGBTQ+ equality. Equality Voters are younger, more racially diverse, and more female than the general electorate, they recognize and trust the HRC brand, and they are more likely to identify with issue-specific organizations than candidates or political parties.
Across the country, HRC PAC works every day to elect pro-equality leaders who support policies that will support the rights and lives of LGBTQ+ people. During the 2020 election cycle, HRC staff on the ground recruited 5,800 individual volunteers nationwide who completed 28,500 hours of voter contact in more than 2,650 volunteer events. HRC engaged in robust digital and online GOTV efforts, including sending over 2.7 million person-to-person text messages, a massive increase from 2018 when approximately 500,000 texts were sent. HRC sent over 2.5 million mail pieces, had over 930,000 phone conversations with voters, and engaged more than 200,000 voters through HRC’s voter dashboard at hrc.org/vote.
