by Delphine Luneau

"Minnesotans Can Look Forward to a State Government That Will Respect and Advance LGBTQ+ Rights, Abortion Rights, Voting Rights, and So Many More Freedoms That We All Count On"

ST. PAUL — Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) — the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) civil rights organization — celebrated the newly elected pro-equality majority in the Minnesota State Senate.

Human Rights Campaign National Campaign Director Geoff Wetrosky released the following statement:

“The voters of Minnesota have sent a clear message with this election – it’s time for a pro-equality majority, one that respects the rights of all people in this state, to set the course for the State Senate. Combined with HRC-endorsed Gov. Tim Walz and the pro-equality majority that retained control of the State House of Representatives, Minnesotans can look forward to a state government that will respect and advance LGBTQ+ rights, abortion rights, voting rights, and so many more freedoms that we all count on.”

HRC’s Commitment to Minnesota

HRC worked this year to engage our volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the 660,000 Equality Voters in Minnesota in support of pro-equality candidates up and down the ballot. Equality Voters 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.

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