The Equality PAC Mission
Equality PAC is the political arm of the Congressional LGBTQ Equality Caucus and is dedicated to the full legal and societal equality for LGBTQ Americans. All funds raised into Equality PAC are spent supporting and electing openly LGBTQ individuals and strong LGBTQ allies to the United States Congress and Senate who are committed to passing the Equality ACT and to ensuring full civil rights and protections for all LGBTQ Americans.
In 2018, Equality PAC contributed $3M to support incumbent and non-incumbent candidates in the midterm elections, and made history by helping to elect Senator Kyrsten Sinema (Arizona), re-electing Senator Tammy Baldwin (Wisconsin), and electing four new LGBTQ Members of Congress: Angie Craig (Minnesota), Sharice Davids (Kansas), Katie Hill (California), and Chris Pappas (New Hampshire).
Equality PAC is committed to building on that progress in the 2020 elections and to growing our LGBT Caucus again. So far this cycle, Equality PAC has already announced our endorsements of six LGBT congressional candidates for 2020: including three in open- Democratic seats (New York City Councilmember Ritchie Torres in New York; San Diego City Council President Georgette Goméz in California; and former Obama Administration Cabinet Official John Blair in New Mexico); one in a now open-Republican Red2Blue seat (U.S. Air Force veteran Gina Ortiz Jones in Texas); and two year targeted Red2Blue Republican-held districts (State Representative Jon Hoadley in Michigan and attorney and civic leader Pat Hackett in Indiana). We hope to add additional endorsements as the cycle continues.
Contribute to Equality PAC today and join us in the fight to support more openly LGBT candidates running for federal office, as well as members of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus
