HRC supporter and lifelong Mississippian Helen Napier was born in the delta town of Drew in 1923, just three years after women were given the right to vote in this country. This September, Helen will turn 93 years old and is looking forward to seeing the first woman become president of the United States.
Just like Hillary Clinton, Helen is no stranger to hard work. She has broken several glass ceilings herself. Helen was the first woman to lead the banking examiner division for the Mississippi Department of Banking and Consumer Finance, a department she worked in for over 35 years.
Though she is retired now, Helen has not slowed down. When she is not helping out at her church or working on behalf of the residents of Community Place Nursing home where she serves on the board of directors, she enjoys volunteering for HRC in Mississippi.
Equality for everyone in our state is something that Helen not only believes in but something she is dedicated to bringing about, especially for her LGBT friends. That's why Helen is joining other HRC supporters by making phone calls on behalf of Secretary Clinton hoping to ensure a win in Mississippi.
On Tuesday, March 8, Helen is going to the polls to vote for Secretary Hillary Clinton in the Mississippi primary. “A woman’s place is in the White House,” said Helen.
