Human Rights Campaign expands Ohio staff to 9 ahead of Nov. 3rd election

WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 15, 2020:  The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) has announced the addition of 7 staff in Ohio, bringing our total number of staff mobilizing voters in Ohio to 9 with less than 49 days until the November 3rd election.

HRC is adding staff in key states across the country dedicated to mobilizing and turning out 389,000 “Equality Voters” that will make the difference in elections for Joe Biden, Ohio Supreme Court candidates, U.S. House candidates, and State Legislative candidates. HRC’s grassroots army builds upon the more than 600 endorsements made this cycle, a record for the organization.

“We are thrilled to grow our grassroots army to do the difficult, necessary work of mobilization and turnout of Equality Voters ahead of the most consequential election of our lives,” said Ohio State Director Shawn Copeland. “This election means literal life or death for some LGBTQ people.  The work our organizing staff will do over the next 49 days will push our endorsed candidates over the top to victory and help us expand and defend key protections for LGBTQ people in 2021 and beyond. Through the power of organizing and this investment in Ohio, we are competing for every last vote.”

In the 2018 midterms, HRC mobilized its grassroots army of 3.2 million members, supporters, and volunteers to work on behalf of pro-equality candidates and engage pro-equality voters primarily in six key states: Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. This unprecedented grassroots mobilization worked to recruit and train volunteers, register and mobilize voters and grow the organization's political organizing efforts in order to pull the emergency brake on the hateful anti-LGBTQ agenda of the Trump-Pence administration and elect a Congress that would hold them accountable.

In 2020, HRC will have significant full-time staff in seven priority states (Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin) and additional staff focused on a second tier of states. While in person organizing has been limited by the COVID-19 pandemic, HRC has embraced digital organizing, launching a new tool called TEAM allowing our broad network of volunteers and steering committees to engage their networks personally and hundreds of virtual phone banks and text banks to engage pro-equality voters even without the ability to interact in person.
