FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Equality Caucus Endorses Co-Chair Sean Patrick Maloney for Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaigns Committee

 

Washington, D.C. – The Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus is pleased to announce the endorsement of Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney for Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaigns Committee (DCCC). Congressman Maloney’s proven leadership advancing equality, protecting LGBTQ+ Americans from discrimination, and supporting LGBTQ+ candidates has earned this endorsement.

 

As we fight for full equality under the law and inclusion for all LGBTQ+ people, we must elect leaders from within our community who will work to advance our cause. It is essential that we are represented and valued - not only in the halls of Congress - but on the ballot. 

 

Though we saw historic strides in LGBTQ+ representation in local and statewide races in the 2020 election, our community is still underrepresented at the highest levels of Congress - including in our leadership. In fact, Congressman Maloney would be the first out Member of Congress to serve the Democratic party as chair of the DCCC. 

 

Representation matters, both in our daily work for the people - and in our campaigns. LGBTQ+ leadership at the top of the DCCC will support LGBTQ+ incumbents and candidates, and in-turn, better support LGBTQ+ Americans. 

Please contact Shawn Gaylord at 202-257-8416 or shawn.gaylord@mail.house.gov with press inquiries.

 

Founded in 2008, the mission of the Congressional LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus is to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality. The Caucus, which is led by the seven openly LGBTQ+ members of Congress, is strongly committed to achieving the full enjoyment of human rights for LGBTQ+ people in the U.S. and around the world.
