HRC Greater Philadelphia Gets Out the Vote for Hillary

by Guest contributor May 25, 2016

Post submitted by David Klein, Political Chair of the HRC Greater Philadelphia Steering Committee

In Philadelphia, we're incredibly proud to be known as the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. We live that moniker, not just in word, but also in deed. The best example this is Philadelphia’s perfect 100 (plus 16 bonus points) on HRC's Municipal Equality Index, which examines the laws, policies, and services of municipalities and rates them on the basis of their inclusivity of LGBT people who live and work there. Unfortunately, not all LGBT Americans are able to live with the same protections and privileges that we enjoy. That's why I feel a special obligation to do my part to ensure that we elect Hillary Clinton, a strong pro-equality candidate, as our next President of the United States.

Last month, just days before the pivotal Pennsylvania primary election, the HRC Greater Philadelphia Steering Committee partnered with Hillary for America to host a phone bank to get out the vote for Secretary Clinton. Nearly a dozen volunteers and Steering Committee members showed up, making thousands of calls urging Democrats to get out to the polls to support Hillary. Response was overwhelmingly positive and we're proud to have played a small part in Hillary's resounding victory in Pennsylvania just a few days later.

As Political Chair of the HRC Greater Philadelphia Steering Committee, it was wonderful to see how engaged our volunteer base is politically and we look forward to further partnering with the Clinton campaign in the coming months to ensure that a future President Clinton can expand on the gains we've made during President Obama’s time in the Oval Office.
