Jaime Harrison on Civil Rights

 

 


HRC: Harrison among strongest advocate for LGBTQ equality

[Human Rights Campaign press release]: "Jaime Harrison has been among the strongest advocates for LGBTQ equality and we're proud to stand by his side as he runs for Senate," said the HRC President. "Harrison's demonstrated record of support for LGBTQ people and families stands in stark contrast with his opponent, who has refused to support non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people despite over 58% of South Carolinians supporting those protections."

Encourage voter drives among unregistered African Americans

He encouraged voter registration drives to continue, especially in the African American community. "There are almost 400,000 unregistered African Americans in South Carolina," he said. "There are 40,000 unregistered African Americans in the Spartanburg and Greenville areas."

Opposes voters having to provide Social Security numbers

Harrison called the lawsuit "a strong step" in the fight to protect voting rights in the state. "This unconstitutional requirement has forced almost one million eligible South Carolina voters, including over 400,000 people of color, from being able to register in the state. The people of South Carolina deserve better from their leaders," Harrison said in a statement. South Carolina is one of five states that require voters to provide their Social Security numbers.
