Date: January 15. Venue: 42West
Hundreds of Hillary Clinton supporters gathered together to celebrate the future. The former First Lady & Secretary of State, with a trailblazing 2016 campaign, is strategically planning her return to the White House.
Also supporting the event was former Congressmen & Civil Rights Leader Barney Frank, known in the political arena for defending gender equality, and film producer Bruce Cohen, famous for his 2008 bio-film Milk, an inspiring movie starring Sean Penn that chronicles the life of activist/politician Harvey Milk.
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights… Rights are not conferred by government, they are the birth right of all people… because we are human, we therefore have rights, and because we have rights, governments are bound to protect them…” –Hillary Rodham Clinton
“…no matter what we look like, where we come from, or who we are, we are all equally entitled to our human rights and dignity… ” –Hillary Rodham Clinton
“…gay people are born into and belong to every society in the world. They are all ages, all races, all faiths… They are our family, our friends and our neighbors. Being gay…is a human reality…” –Hillary Rodham Clinton
“…the third and perhaps most challenging issue arises when people site religious or cultural values as a reason to violate or not to protect the human rights of LGBT citizens…no practice or tradition trumps the human rights that belong to all of us…and caring for others is an expression of what it means to be fully human. It is because the human experience is universal that human rights are universal and cut across all religions and cultures…” –Hillary Rodham Clinton
“…laws that require equal protections reinforce the moral imperative of equality…as we work to embrace tolerance and respect the dignity of all persons… for greater understanding… ” –Hillary Rodham Clinton
“…be on the right side of history…” –Hillary Rodham Clinton
