The following post comes from HRC Regional Field Director Karin Quimby. Karin is just one of 30 HRC staff that will be on the ground in 16 states by Election Day, working with HRC-endorsed candidates and engaging our membership about the upcoming elections:
A few days ago, Collin Burton, the Ohio Democratic Party LGBT Caucus Director, and I were called to Cleveland, Ohio to help mobilize the LGBT community here in support for the pro-equality Democratic ticket. We’ve now taken over the Rocky River office and our HRC and allied volunteers are staffing the phones and signing people up to canvass on Get Out the Vote weekend.
It’s been great working with Collin in Columbus for the past 6 weeks and exciting to be in Cleveland now for the final push. We know that every vote counts and if our volunteers get out and knock on doors that we’ll win this crucial election and Ohio will continue the long march to full equality for all its citizens.
To help us answer the call, please go to: www.fightforohio.com/gotv. A few hours of your time now can mean a lifetime of equality for those who come after us.
