Tamblyn has emphasized the importance of gender equality and motivating young voters. According to a press release, “Tamblyn will highlight Hillary Clinton’s record of fighting to expand equal opportunity for women and girls, as well as urge millennials to vote early for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine.”

Tamblyn stated, “It’s really up to all of us to demonstrate who we are and who our country is and to stand up and be very clear about what we expect from our next president, how we want to bring our country together, where we don’t want to have the kind of pitting of people one against the other, where instead we celebrate our diversity, we lift people up, and we make our country even greater. America is great because America is good.”
