Today, HRC announced the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Colin Allred and Texas State Rep. Julie Johnson.

Allred has been a devoted ally of LGBTQ progress in Congress, voting in favor of the Equality Act and every pro-LGBTQ piece of legislation in the 116th Congress. Allred’s endorsement marks HRC’s first Congressional endorsement of the 2020 election cycle. Johnson was instrumental in defeating anti-LGBTQ legislation in Texas, and improving bills that would’ve had broad, discriminatory impact on millions of Texans. She is also a member of the Texas State House’s first-ever LGBTQ Caucus.

“From his work as a civil rights attorney to helping pass the Equality Act, U.S Representative Colin Allred has been a strong ally and a steadfast supporter of LGBTQ Texans,” said HRC President Alphonso David.“Congressman Allred is the type of leader we need in Washington: passionate, committed and focused on improving the lives of his constituents. We look forward to helping him return to Congress so we can continue this work, together.”  […]
