Austin, Texas – October 5th, 2020 – Equality Texas, the largest statewide organization solely dedicated to securing full equality for LGBTQ Texans today endorsed Democratic United States Senate Candidate MJ Hegar and a slate of pro-equality United States Congressional incumbents and candidates for the November 2020 General Election.
“It is critically important that Equality Texans turn out en masse to vote this November to ensure that Texas continues its march toward equal justice under the law. With the death of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg it is imperative that we elect a pro-equality majority to the United States Senate and House to ensure passage of the Equality Act at the national level to protect LGBTQ people across this country. These incumbents and candidates for office have committed to supporting LGBTQ rights, civil rights and social justice. We strongly support their candidacy,” said Ricardo Martinez,” CEO of Equality Texas.
Today, on the last day to register to vote for the November 3rd election, we proudly endorse candidates who believe in full lived equality for LGBTQ Texans under the law.
