Tell your Senator to vote AGAINST Scott Garrett for the President of the Export-Import Bank. During his time in Congress, Garrett voted against hate crimes protections for LGBTQ people and TWICE voted in favor of writing discrimination into the U.S. Constitution by banning marriage equality.
Garrett is the second Trump-Pence nominee with a significant anti-LGBTQ record shamelessly chosen to replace an openly-LGBTQ public servant.
Scott Garrett is not qualified to be the President of the Export-Import Bank of the United States. It makes no sense to appoint someone to lead an institution he does not believe should exist. Among many House Members with anti-LGBTQ records, Scott Garrett managed to stand out for his extreme positions on the inclusion of LGBTQ people in our country. The Trump-Pence administration continues to dispatch anti-LGBTQ officials to all levels of government and Garrett is simply another disgraceful agent in their crusade against equality. We urge the Senate to reject his nomination.
Stand with the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization, as we stand for fight the nomination of this unqualified bigot. While the Trump-Pence Administration peddles hatred, discrimination and bigotry, we must unite and fight back.
