Bro of the Week: Kavin

Nelson Melegrito



Congratulations to our Bro of the Week, Kavin!kavinb

Kavin is a Nevada resident and works in retail at the fabulous Las Vegas strip.

He has volunteered for the Hillary Clinton campaign for more than a year- making calls, canvassing and knocking on doors and administrative office work. Not only he was the Precinct Captain for the Hillary for Nevada campaign but also served as the site lead, acting as the liaison for 7 precincts. During this time, he has volunteered for about 20 hours a week and became a witness to see Nevada become one of Hillary’s firewalls!

Nowadays, he volunteers about 5 to 10 hours a week, including voter registration. In addition, Kavin is very active in social media via Twitter- recruiting volunteers from red states to make calls for Nevada, now seen as another firewall in the general election.

Kavin shares with us why she supports Hillary for a long time with his personal story:

“I started out supporting Hillary Clinton in 08. I lived through the 90s. I thought she was the most brilliant First Lady ever. When I did research last year, I realized just how much Hillary had done for the LGBT community. Then, I further researched, and saw all the amazing things she had done for the HIV community. She didn’t need a “clincher moment,” as she already had me. However, as an activist for HIV rights and anti-stigma, I voluntarily “came out” as 20 years HIV+. She is absolutely for PrEP, and, will work towards an AIDS-free generation. I’m here to remind her to keep fighting for decriminalization of HIV and to help fight the stigma attached. She represents so many other issues to me, however. From women’s rights to gay rights to fighting for autism, for my friend, Donna, a grandmother of 2 on the autism spectrum.”
Thank you very much Kavin for your outstanding dedication and hard work to elect our next President!
