Co-Chair praises Costa as a leader in the fight to protect LGBTQ Americans from Donald Trump’s “hateful attacks”
Today, Jim Costa’s campaign for US Congress announced that Equality PAC, one of the nation’s premier organizations dedicated to bringing equality to LGBTQ Americans has thrown its support behind Costa’s re-election.
Congressman David Cicilline, Co-Chair of Equality PAC said: “Jim Costa has been a longtime champion for the LGBTQ community, working tirelessly to ensure LGBTQ Americans can live in a safer nation with respect and dignity. From being an early ally of the right for same-sex couples to marry, to his steadfast support of the Equality Act, Jim’s vision and experience are sorely needed in the fight to defend LGBTQ rights from Donald Trump’s hateful attacks.”
Equality PAC is dedicated to making full legal and societal equality of LGBTQ people a reality by creating a federal legislative environment conducive to that goal. Costa has been a longtime ally of the LGBTQ community, most recently through supporting HR-5, The Equality Act, which ensures LGBTQ Americans are guaranteed the full protections of federal civil rights laws.
Congressman Costa said: “I am proud of my continued partnership with Equality PAC and other organizations dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of LGBTQ Americans. I will always stand up for the right of all Americans to live their lives free from fear, violence and bigotry. It is a true honor to have the early support of Equality PAC and I look forward to continuing to work with them to accomplish even more for the LGBTQ community.”
