"North Carolina Needs Champions Like Jeff Who Will Stand Up and Fight Back Against Those Who Want to Drag Our Country Backwards"
CHARLOTTE — Today the Human Rights Campaign PAC (HRC PAC) announced its endorsement of Jeff Jackson for Congress. HRC PAC is committed to engaging its volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize more than 1.7 million Equality Voters across North Carolina in support of Jackson and other pro-equality candidates up and down the ballot.
Human Rights Campaign North Carolina State Director Molly Whitehorn released the following statement:
“We’re proud to support Jeff Jackson’s campaign for Congress. At a time of increasing attacks against the LGBTQ+ community, North Carolina needs champions like Jeff who will stand up and fight back against those who want to drag our country backwards. As a state lawmaker, Jeff opposed HB2 and pushed for its full repeal. In Congress, he will be an unwavering advocate for LGBTQ+ North Carolinians. We look forward to doing everything we can to send him to Washington this November.”
Jeff Jackson released the following statement:
“I’m honored to be endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign, which has been a leader in standing up for equality and ensuring basic rights for the LGBTQ+ community. We must continue this fight so LGBTQ+ Americans can live open and honest lives, free from discrimination. In Congress, I am eager to work alongside them to make this country a place where equality, respect and inclusion is at the center of everything we do.”
HRC’s Commitment to North Carolina
Equality Voters, including more than 1.7 million across the Tar Heel State, 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.
