Top 3 reasons to vote for Tom Wolf next Tuesday

Vote for Tom Wolf for GovernorA few weeks ago, Equality PA proudly endorsed Tom Wolf for Governor. We decided to endorse Tom Wolf because he stands for equality for the LGBT community—and he will be a strong advocate for equality who will get things done when he gets to Harrisburg.

It is critical that you get out to vote for Tom Wolf on Tuesday, and that you bring as many friends and family with you to vote as possible. You can sign up to volunteer to help get voters to the polls this weekend here.

Just in case you need a little bit more encouragement to share with friends and family to help them get out to vote, we compiled the top three reasons to vote for Tom Wolf when it comes to LGBT Equality:

1. Tom Wolf will not only sign SB/HB 300, Pennsylvania’s nondiscrimination bill, he will work with the legislature to pass the law. Tom Wolf understands that it is past time to make sure that LGBT people cannot be fired from their jobs, evicted from their homes, or turned away from businesses because of who they are. He will make it a priority to update the Human Relations Act to include sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.

2. Tom Wolf will also sign and support updating the Hate Crimes statutes to include sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. In the same way that it’s been too long since we have not been protected from discrimination, it’s been too long since we have not been protected from violence based on who we are.

3. Tom Wolf understands that the transgender community experiences a disproportionate amount of discrimination, especially in the prison system. In our meetings with him, he called out discrimination in prisons and made a commitment to making sure that transgender people have access to the health care they need.

We could go on and on, but those are three pretty great reasons to vote for Tom Wolf. Be sure to forward this email to friends and family, and let them know that they can get all the information they need to vote and download the updated voters guide here.

You can also do more to be sure that Tom Wolf wins next Tuesday. Don’t assume it’s over just because the polls are looking good. Sometimes people can get complacent when it looks like it’s a foregone conclusion and they lose their motivation to vote. We can’t let that happen. That’s why Equality PA has set a goal of sending 100 volunteers to Tom Wolf’s campaign this weekend.

You can sign up to volunteer here.

A few hours of your time this weekend will make a huge difference to the campaign. And we need Tom Wolf in the Governor’s mansion next year.
