The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) announced its endorsements of Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker and Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton for re-election.

A press release stated, “HRC PAC is committed to engaging its volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the nearly 3 million Equality Voters in Illinois in support of Pritzker, Stratton and all pro-equality candidates up and down the ballot.”

Human Rights Campaign Interim President Joni Madison said, “Gov. Pritzker and Lt. Gov. Stratton have shown a strong, consistent and impactful commitment to advancing LGBTQ+ rights across the state of Illinois. Gov. Pritzker signed a multitude of LGBTQ+ rights legislation to support a wide variety of pro-equality initiatives—from combating gender identity-based discrimination in schools to promoting inclusivity and equity within the state government. And both leaders have consistently spoken out against the anti-LGBTQ+ political attacks taking place across our country. We are proud to endorse Gov. Pritzker and Lt. Gov. Stratton for re-election and we’re ready to mobilize the people of Illinois this November.”

Pritzker said, “As dangerous right-wing politicians in Illinois and across the country take aim at the LGBTQ+ community, I am proud to stand up for equality and speak out against hate. During my governorship and long before, I have fought to pass meaningful legislation to ensure Illinois is a safe haven for all, no matter who you love or how you identify. I remain unwavering in my commitment to support LGBTQ+ Illinoisans and am honored to receive the Human Rights Campaign’s endorsement.”
