VIRGINIA- On Saturday, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the country’s largest LGBTQ + civil rights organization, held its LGBTQ + Day of Action ahead of the November 2 election. The day of action featured campaign launches in Leesburg, Manassas, Richmond, Stafford and Virginia Beach and included two events led by Delegate Danica Roem, Delegate Joshua Cole and Virginia’s next Lieutenant Governor Hala Ayala. HRC volunteers knocked on more than 1,240 doors across the Commonwealth, adding to the 21,373 phone calls and doors knocked by HRC volunteers in Virginia for the 2021 election. Volunteers reminded voters to support the full list of HRC-approved candidates including Terry McAuliffe for Governor, Attorney General Mark Herring and over 20 candidates for the Virginia House of Delegates.
