LGBT equality is on the line up and down the ballot? We’ve made remarkable progress in recent years, but electing the wrong people could easily reverse everything we have achieved together. As we approach Election Day, we’ll be sharing our endorsements with you, so you know who stands on the side of full equality.
EqualityMaine is proud to endorse Chellie Pingree for re-election to Congress. In her first term she helped pass groundbreaking bills to advance equality: the Matthew Shepard hate crimes law and the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Since then she has continued to work for progress on our issues, as a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus and as a co-sponsor of the Equality Act. Simply put, Chellie has had our backs every step of the way.
