The results of our polls released today by the Human Rights Campaign confirms what we know to be true: candidates against equality will lose. The polls were conducted in swing districts across the nation and showed widespread support for the newly introduced Equality Act. We're excited to apply our work for the Human Rights Campaign to more legislative races in the future, and we look forward to continuing the fight for non-discrimination protections for LGBT Americans.
