Celebrating Pride Month and the Rising Influence of LGBTQ+ Voters 🏳️🌈🏳️⚧️
Updated: Aug 30
With Pride Month upon us, Register Her wants to highlight the rising influence of the LGBTQ+ community in our elections. A recent report revealed that LGBTQ+ voters are becoming one of the fastest growing voting blocs in the country, projected to represent nearly one-fifth of voters by 2040.
The surge in LGBTQ+ voters is expected to transform the American electoral landscape. In several states, the proportion of LGBTQ+ voters will almost double between 2020 and 2040.
Here is how they will be impacting a few of the states Register Her is concentrating our work in:
Pride Month serves as a powerful reminder of the resilience, strength, and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community throughout history. It is a time to honor the milestones achieved in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights and to acknowledge the ongoing challenges that many still face. As we celebrate Pride Month, it is essential for political parties, candidates, and policymakers to recognize and engage with the LGBTQ+ voting bloc. Understanding their unique concerns and priorities will enable us to foster policies that protect and advance LGBTQ+ rights, such as nondiscrimination protections, healthcare access, and transgender rights.
Register Her fully embraces the rising influence of LGBTQ+ voters and their role in shaping a brighter future for all. We believe the best way to civically engage communities is to elevate the members already doing this work. This is why Register Her has set the goal of hiring one or more LGBTQ+ organizers as part of our team in the next election cycle.
Let us use this Pride Month as a catalyst for change, unity, and celebration!
