A hero making history

Bravery comes in many forms. Sometimes it's making tough choices, and sometimes it's just being yourself.

There is nothing more fundamentally American than the ability to be true to who you are. That's why I'm proud to chair the Transgender Equality Task Force in Congress. And it's one of the reasons I'm so excited to see Democratic candidate Christine Hallquist run for governor of Vermont.

But it's not the only reason.

As the CEO of Vermont Electric Coop, Christine transformed a company on the brink of bankruptcy into a national leader on renewable energy and fighting climate change. She is running to help working communities with a living wage, paid family leave, support for unions and public education. A long-term supporter of universal health care, she's also a Health Care Hero who won't stop until every Vermonter has quality care.

Please contribute now to support Christine's campaign for Governor of Vermont. She is the type of leader who has a vision for a bigger future.

It is a top priority of mine to shape our laws so all people are offered equal protection. I know that electing Christine will be an inspiration for LGBTQ Americans everywhere. Her candidacy is a big step forward for us all, reminding us that Americans are welcoming and inclusive – despite the Trump Administration's attempts to divide us – and that one of our most cherished freedoms is the freedom to be yourself.

Please chip in right now to help Christine and Vermont make history.
