REALITY CHECK: Mike Pence’s Anti-Gay Record Shows a Disturbingly Anti-American View of Everyone Being Created Equal

WASHINGTON - October 04, 2016 -

“The gains we’ve made as a society with LGBT acceptance and rights have been remarkable. As an educator, I’ve seen our school’s hallways turn into a more positive, nurturing environment for LGBT students. Mike Pence’s anti-LGBT actions are regressive for schools and depressing for all students. Pence’s message to the LGBT community is loud and clear: You are worth less. Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine understand we are stronger together – and that means all Americans.” - Jaim Foster, Elementary Educator, Arlington, VA
