More Info: 
EqualityMaine is proud to endorse Joe Biden for President and Kamala Harris for Vice President. In contrast with the deliberate hostility and bigotry of the current administration, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are running on the most pro-LGBTQ+ platform in the history of the United States. In their plan for LGBTQ+ equality, they promise to make passage of the Equality Act a top legislative priority during their first 100 days; reverse the transgender military ban as well as military policies that discriminate against people with HIV; work to end suicide among LGBTQ+ youth; end the misuse of religious exemptions to enable discrimination; address violence against LGBTQ+ people (something especially affecting transgender women of color); and more. While their policy agenda is exciting, there’s an equally compelling reason to support Joe Biden and Kamala Harris: who they will appoint to the most powerful positions in the government. Donald Trump and Mike Pence have surrounded themselves with anti-LGBTQ+ extremists running critical agencies like Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, and the Department of Justice. And their administration has resulted in the lifetime appointment of anti-LGBTQ+ extremists to numerous federal judgeships around the country, including to the U.S. Supreme Court. With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, we know we can count on qualified people being chosen to run critical agencies, and qualified people being appointed to the bench who understand that justice must apply to everyone, including the most marginalized. Our community and our country deserve better than four more years of the lying, hateful, bigoted, and narcissistic incumbent. We need dignity and respect and real leadership in the White House, and we desperately need change. Please join us in supporting Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
