She calls for supporters to focus on the 2018 midterm elections
Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton on Thursday warned that President Donald Trump could roll back progress on LGBT rights.
“We may not ever be able to count on this administration to lead on LGBT issues,” Clinton said in a speech in New York.
Clinton was addressing a fundraising dinner for The Center, an LGBT community organization, where she received an award and thanked members of the audience for supporting her unsuccessful 2016 presidential bid. But she told those gathered there to watch out for “the progress that we fought for, that many of you were on the front lines for.
“It may not be as secure as we once expected,” she said.
Clinton will be honored with the American Heroes for Children Award, and will deliver the keynote speech at the event. CHF board member Jane Pauley will be honoured with the CHF Pioneers Award, and CHF co-founder Paul Simon will perform. Paul Simon will be joined by former New York Yankee and guitarist Bernie Williams.
Also being honoured at the event are CHF supporter Dr. David Dines and long-time corporate partner Morgan Stanley.
The event takes place at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC on Tuesday, May 23.
Now she can add “fashion muse” and “footwear model” to the list, thanks to Katy Perry, who designed a pair of pumps in her honor, dubbing them The Hillary. And when Clinton got her hands on a pair of the baby pink pumps, she was more than happy to show them off to their best effect for Perry’s Instagram.
Cute for Easter, they are affordable and come in small sizes, too! Before I take any more abuse for talking about Hillary’s shoes, yes we do talk about such accessories on men too! I have seen lots of comments about extra-long neck ties that do not camouflage a big gut.
The women’s activism exemplified by the national protests Jan. 21 has National Council for Jewish Women organizers sensing momentum heading into the 47th National Convention this month.
About 300 women from all over the United States are expected to attend the National Council of Jewish Women’s National Convention this month in Atlanta, and organizers are excited about the diverse backgrounds that will be represented at the event.
“It’s an opportunity with an amazing group of women who are so smart and so dedicated to social justice,” said Rachel Rosner, the president of NCJW’s Atlanta Section. “It’s really impressive to see so many talented women together in one place.”
The 47th National Convention has plenty of star power. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will be presented the Women Who Dared Award; she’s scheduled to accept by video speech rather than appear in person. Democratic Congressman John Lewis of Atlanta, who has taken a leading role in the opposition to Trump, will receive the Faith and Humanity Award in person and speak at the awards gala the final night of the conference.
Hillary returned once more today to celebrate the completion of U.S. Diplomacy Center Pavilion, the first floor of which was dedicated and named the Hillary Rodham Clinton Pavilion. Best compliments, Mme. Secretary! You earned this! We cannot wait to visit this impressive new landmark museum!
The event was held at the Newseum in Washington D.C. Introducing Hillary, Marian Wright Edelman noted her overwhelming lead in the popular vote and called her “the People’s President.” Hillary admitted that making this appearance was not the easiest thing for her. She said she wanted to curl up with a good book and her dogs and never leave the house again. But she said she got up and dusted herself off because Marian exemplified that for her. She reminisced about Marian’s leadership and service, and her work with RFK and MLK.
Hillary quoted Marian, “Service is the rent we pay for living.” She spoke of service and said she did not get into public service to hold high office. She called child poverty America’s problem. She said there is a lot of work to do and asked us not to lose heart or give up on the values we share and to stay engaged. She told us America is worth it. Our children are worth it. She quoted 1st Corinthians, “Love never fails.”
Hillary told the story of her mother, Dorothy, who had a difficult childhood. She dreams of going back to her mom’s childhood to tell her that she would grow up to have a family and her daughter would become a U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and win more than 62 million votes for President of the United States.

@U.S. Senate: Time to ratify LOST!
"... ratify the Law of the Sea Convention, which has provided the international framework for exploring these new opportunities in the Arctic. We abide by the international law that undergirds the convention, but we think the United States should be a member, because the convention sets down the rules of the road that protect freedom of navigation, provide maritime security, serve the interests of every nation that relies on sea lanes for commerce and trade, and also sets the framework for exploration for the natural resources that may be present in the Arctic." -HRC, 06-03-12, Tromso Norway
She would NEVER have allowed social safety nets to be "on the table."
