"As Attorney General, She Will Stand Up for All Those Who Have Been Knocked Down and Counted Out Before"
Atlanta, Georgia — Today the Human Rights Campaign PAC (HRC PAC) announced its endorsement of Jen Jordan for Attorney General of Georgia. HRC PAC is committed to engaging our volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the nearly 1.5 million Equality Voters in Georgia in support of Jordan and other pro-equality candidates up and down the ballot.
Human Rights Campaign Campaign Director Geoff Wetrosky released the following statement:
“Jen Jordan has spent her entire life fighting for Georgians who need someone to fight for them. As Attorney General, she will stand up for all those who have been knocked down and counted out before. We are proud to endorse her campaign today. We look forward to working with Jen to safeguard voting rights, protect LGBTQ+ equality, and ensure that the Department of Law works on behalf of all Georgians, not just the privileged and powerful.”
Jen Jordan released the following statement:
"I am humbled that the Human Rights Campaign has endorsed me to be Georgia’s next Attorney General. I am committed to protecting and advancing equal rights for our LGBTQ+ community, and as a life-long ally, promise to be a leader for ALL Georgians when elected in November."
Raised by a single mom in Eastman, Jen Jordan learned the value of hard work and the challenges facing working people from an early age. In the Georgia Senate, she’s fought to strengthen education, keep corporate spending out of elections, and hold the line against those who tried to overturn the 2020 election. As Attorney General, Jen will be an advocate for all Georgians – protecting voting rights, expanding access to health care, and keeping our air clean and our water safe.
HRC’s Commitment to Georgia
Equality Voters, including the nearly 1.5 million across Georgia, 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.
