The Human Rights Campaign stands with Equality California and a long list of California elected leaders and LGBTQ+ champions who have opposed the effort to recall Governor Gavin Newsom. Pledge to vote NO on Recall by September 14th.
Governor Newsom has been a longtime ally of the LGBTQ+ community. As Mayor of San Francisco, he issued hundreds of marriage licenses to same-sex couples when marriage equality was expressly prohibited by law. In his role as Governor, he built an inclusive administration that strengthened protections for LGBTQ+ Californians, eliminating stark disparities in laws that punished LGBTQ+ youth more harshly than their peers, extending protections for transgender, gender-nonconforming and intersex Californians in state custody, and ending long-standing practices of insurance companies discriminating against HIV-positive individuals. More recently, he signed legislation to ensure comprehensive data focused on how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the LGBTQ+ community be collected.
This effort to recall Governor Newsom would stall all of the great progress that has been made for LGBTQ+ Californians and we cannot afford to stop now. Ballots are in the mail - Pledge to vote NO on Recall by September 14th!
