Phoenix, AZ - Today, HRC announced their endorsement of January Contreras for Arizona Attorney General.
“The role of attorneys general in protecting the civil liberties of all Americans — especially the LGBTQ community — has never been more important, and we are proud to endorse such a strong champion of fairness, justice and equality,” said HRC Senior Vice President for Policy and Public Affairs JoDee Winterhof.
“January Contreras’ strong track record as a state prosecutor and Assistant Attorney General make her the clear choice to defend the people of Arizona. We look forward to working with her to move equality forward in the Grand Canyon State.”
HRC is a leading organization in advocating for marriage equality, adoption by LGBTQ people, and laws that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. HRC recently announced a bold, proactive grassroots expansion with a focus on organization and mobilization of voters in Arizona.
January Contreras shared: “I'm proud to have HRC's endorsement in Arizona's Attorney General election. All Arizonans deserve the right to work, learn, and live with confidence that they’ll be treated with dignity and respect. As Attorney General, I will put a stop to the use of taxpayer money for partisan litigation and actions that oppose equality for all. I will be an unwavering champion for the constitutional rights of all Arizonans, including our LGBTQ community.”
