LPAC launches Lesbians4Hillary.com to support Clinton’s run

LPAC, the country’s first and only lesbian political action committee, announced it will endorse Hillary Clinton and her historic campaign for president. With unanimous support from the Board of Directors, LPAC becomes the first national LGBTQ organization to endorse Clinton’s campaign for the presidency. To support the campaign, LPAC is launching Lesbians 4 Hillary, a campaign that will be co-chaired by sports icon and humanitarian Billie Jean King, a longtime supporter of both LPAC and Hillary Clinton.

“We are proud to endorse Hillary Clinton as she begins her run for the White House,” said LPAC Board Chair Laura Ricketts. “Hillary is an unyielding advocate for LGBTQ women. Our endorsement today represents LPAC’s strong support of her candidacy.”

As part of the LPAC endorsement, the nation’s leading political action committee for LGBTQ women has launched a website with their campaign (www.lesbians4hillary.com). The campaign will be an online and grassroots effort for LGBTQ women and allies to join together to support Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.

“Hillary Clinton is a proven leader and she has a strong track record when it comes to inclusion — specifically for women and the LGBTQ community,” said Billie Jean King.  “Her entire career has been a road map to get her to this moment and she has earned my respect and my vote to become the next President of the United States of America. I am honored to join LPAC and help lead our effort to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016.”
