Grass Roots Activism- Our salvation
Glad to see that President Obama will be making a speech soon. Sent encouragement to the French Presidential Candidate Melacon.
Popular vote winner Hillary Clinton blasted the Vagina’s Grabber In Chief recent anti-LGBTQ attacks, urging Americans to “remember 2018, the midterm elections” and “resist, insist, persist and enlist and make sure our voices and our votes count.” Hillary said:
“We have to face the fact that we may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues,” the former Democratic nominee said during a speech at a fundraising event for The Center, a community LGBT organization in New York City.
Clinton singled out the Trump administration’s February directive revoking Obama-era protections for transgender students, with the Justice and Education Departments telling schools to disregard memos instructing them that preventing students from using bathrooms that aligned with their sexual identity would violate federal law.
The 2016 Democratic nominee added that if LGBT advocates wanted to see progress from the federal government, they needed to focus their efforts on the next round of congressional elections.
