As Mayor, Gloria will show LGBTQ youth and young people of color that their opportunities are limitless.The Human Rights Campaign is proud to endorse Todd Gloria for Mayor and will work over the next 46 days to ensure he’s elected.

In the 2018 midterms, HRC mobilized our grassroots army of 3.2 million members, supporters, and volunteers to work on behalf of pro-equality candidates and engage pro-equality voters primarily in six key states: Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. This unprecedented grassroots mobilization worked to recruit and train volunteers, register and mobilize voters and grow the organization's political organizing efforts in order to pull the emergency brake on the hateful anti-LGBTQ agenda of the Trump-Pence administration and elect a Congress that would hold them accountable.

In 2020, our engagement and mobilization efforts have only deepened. In addition to our expansive volunteer network, HRC has had significant full-time staff in seven priority states (Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin) since 2017. The organization is expanding our efforts with additional staff focused on a second tier of states, including California. While in-person organizing has been limited by the COVID-19 pandemic, HRC has embraced digital organizing, launching a new tool called TEAM that allows our broad network of volunteers and steering committees to engage their networks personally as well as hundreds of virtual phone and text banks to engage pro-equality voters in key races.
