Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund Endorse Anthony Woods For U.S. Congress


 
WASHINGTON - The Human Rights Campaign PAC, the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, and the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, which works to grow the number of openly LGBT elected officials across the U.S., announced today the endorsement of Anthony Woods for U.S. Congress.  Woods, who is running in the September 1 Special Election for California's 10th Congressional District, earned the Bronze Star after serving two tours in Iraq in the U.S. Army.  He was honorably discharged after challenging the military’s "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law.
 
"The Human Rights Campaign is proud to endorse Anthony Woods, a veteran of the Iraq war and steadfast advocate for our community, to become the next U.S. Congressman from California's 10th district," said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese.  "Anthony hasn’t just shown his support on issues of LGBT equality, he’s lived them -- especially the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.'  Anthony's support of marriage equality will also be important as we work to repeal Proposition 8, which stripped marriage rights away for California's same-sex couples.  There is no doubt that Anthony will be a role model for LGBT youth, and we applaud his continuing service to our country."
 
"Anthony Woods is an exciting candidate with a tremendous record of accomplishment.  He's also running an impressive campaign.  Anthony has assembled a solid campaign team that understands what it will take to win this extremely competitive race.  We need more leaders like Anthony Woods in the U.S. Congress, so we are proud to endorse him," said Chuck Wolfe, president of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.  "His will be an authentic voice not only for the people of California's 10th Congressional District, but for the millions of Americans for whom the promise of equality remains unfulfilled."
 
"I am honored and proud to earn the support of Human Rights Campaign and the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund," said Anthony Woods, candidate for California's 10th Congressional District.  "They're working to make sure America lives up to its promise of equality under the law, which is something I'll fight for in Congress."
 
Anthony Woods was born and raised in Fairfield, California.  He is a graduate of West Point and earned his masters degree from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.  In addition to his years of service in the Army, Woods has worked on economic policy issues in both the public and private sectors.  To learn more visit: www.AnthonyWoodsForCongress.com.
 
The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
 
The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund is the only national organization dedicated to increasing the number of openly LGBT elected officials at all levels of government in the U.S.
