by HRC Staff

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA — Today the Human Rights Campaign PAC (HRC PAC) announced its endorsement of Virginia State Senator Jennifer McClellan for the U.S. House of Representatives. The HRC PAC is committed to engaging our volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the more than 1.5 million Equality Voters in Virginia in support of candidates who will fight to protect democracy and equality for all Virginians.

Human Rights Campaign (HRC) President Kelley Robinson issued the following statement:

“As a State Senator and Delegate, Jennifer McClellan has been tireless in her fight to defend and expand the rights of LGBTQ+ Virginians. She has fought to ensure all Virginians have equal access to affordable healthcare, reproductive rights, and voting rights, while leading the charge to repeal discriminatory blood donation bans in the state. She has a track record of leadership on LGBTQ+ equality, including her years-long advocacy for non-discrimination protections in housing and leadership on passing the Virginia Values Act. As Congress begins to consider bills that would outlaw abortion and roll back other key rights, the people of Virginia need pro-equality allies like Jennifer McClellan who will stand up for our hard-fought rights. The Human Rights Campaign is proud to endorse Jennifer McClellan for Congress.”

State Senator Jennifer McClellan issued the following statement:

“I’m proud to receive this endorsement from the Human Rights Campaign. Throughout my 18 years in the General Assembly, I’ve been proud to fight a more equitable Virginia, passing legislation that tears down barriers to equality and for LGBTQ+ Virginians across the Commonwealth. I look forward to working with HRC to ensure that LGBTQ+ equality and advocacy are at the forefront of our legislative agenda in Congress and continue my fight for equal protections for all.”

HRC’s Commitment to Virginia

Equality Voters, including the more than 1.5 million in Virginia, 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.
