Clinton described this election as the “most important election of my lifetime,” and that students should “elect democrats up and down the ballot.”

In regards to climate change, Clinton said, “I never thought I would see such a bias against science.” She encouraged students to vote for the candidate that understands that “science is real.”

In light of the controversy surrounding HB2 Clinton said that tolerance was not enough and that the transgender community should be accepted fully.

“Tolerance is insufficient,” Clinton said. “You tolerate a cold, not another person.”chelseaclinton8_web_bensessoms

Clinton also said that when Donald Trump says, “Make America great again,” he means for wealthy straight white men.

She said that there has never been a stronger contrast between two major party candidates and that this election is “about defeating Donald Trump and electing my mom.”

Clinton also stressed the importance of funding education calling attention to her mother being unable to pay off all her student loans until 1998.

In regards to criminal justice, Clinton said that the U.S. must lead by example and reform the entire system at the state and local levels.chelseaclinton6_web_halle
