Rep. Lujan Grisham Receives Perfect Score for Equality Record

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) released the following statement after the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, released its Congressional Scorecard and awarded the Congresswoman a perfect score of 100 for her support for LGBTQ equality in the 115th Congress. Members of Congress were scored based on a range of key indicators of support for LGBTQ equality.

“I am proud of my record fighting for the equal rights of all Americans and honored to have received a perfect score on the HRC’s Congressional Scorecard for supporting the LGBTQ community. We must ensure that every American is entitled to dignity, respect, and their unalienable rights - no matter who they are, or whom they love. I urge Congress to pass the bipartisan Equality Act, which would once and for all uphold the rights and fundamental pillars of human dignity enshrined in the Civil Rights Act more than 50 years ago.”
