Outreach & Inclusion is Our Mission

Stonewall DFL represents the DFL in the LGBTQ community and represents the LGBTQ community in the DFL.

As the official LGBTQ outreach arm of the DFL, we participate in Pride and other events in every corner of the state – educating and registering voters, promoting our endorsed candidates, and creating a pipeline for LGBTQ people to get involved in the DFL Party.

We remind the Party of – and help it fulfill – its obligations of outreach and inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.

Electing Champions for our Community

Stonewall DFL works for a safe and equitable Minnesota by endorsing and electing LGBTQ and allied candidates for public office in and in the Minnesota DFL Party. Our endorsements are important to many Minnesotans who seek our advice choosing candidates that will champion issues impacting the LGBTQ community.

We currently do not have any active endorsements. The first opportunity for endorsements in the 2020 election is at our Annual Membership Meeting on January 4, 2020.

Stonewall DFL

From Ken Martin, Chairman of the Minnesota DFL:

“The Minnesota DFL is monitoring the spread of the coronavirus here in Minnesota very closely and will continue to do so throughout this public health crisis. At this time, the Minnesota Department of Health and other public health agencies have not recommended that organizations cancel community gatherings and events. As such, the Minnesota DFL is recommending that party units proceed with conventions while taking the necessary precautions we outlined in earlier correspondence.

The Minnesota DFL leadership and staff are working closely with the national party, as well as our Constitution, Rules, and Bylaws Committee to explore all contingencies in the event that the guidance from public health officials changes. The DFL will explore all options to allow our party units to conduct the important business of our party while also keeping our party members and the public safe.

Rest assured that the Minnesota DFL’s decision-making process will be guided first and foremost by the well-being of the members of our party and the recommendations of medical experts and the scientific community. We will continue to keep you updated as we learn more.”

I am introducing a bill to halt evictions + provide housing assistance to the Minnesotans who will face housing instability as a result of #COVID19. It is vital we respond now so everyone can stay home & stay safe- this helps keep us all safe. We are in this together. #mnleg

Stonewall DFL endorses @DavinSokup for MN Senate District 20 and Tanner @Sunderman4House 66A. Caucus for them Tuesday Feb 25 - find where: https://t.co/nNJKiKkODW https://t.co/gmAEt9uDSY StonewallDFL photo

I’m truly honored to earn @IlhanMN’s endorsement. Ilhan is a leader in the movement who unapologetically fights for working families and marginalized communities. I'm excited to continue working with Ilhan to achieve the change Minnesotans need. #TeamSonia https://t.co/HUGcECSgAR StonewallDFL photo

While these views are shocking enough on their own, it’s even more disturbing that they’re being made by one of the most powerful elected leaders in Minnesota's state government, and the person who sets the Republican agenda. #mnleg

ICYMI: GOP Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka appeared on a weekly livestream with a controversial, anti-gay televangelist and shared some disgusting opinions about the #LGBTQ community. #mnleg via @MNReformer https://t.co/WBITSTs37i

It’s clear that @paulgazelka will not change his deeply bigoted beliefs. If DFLers do not take back the State Senate, then Minnesota Republicans will continue to be led by a man who uses the Senate to attack our LGBT family, friends, and neighbors. That is unacceptable. #mnleg https://t.co/AfRFPNUx97
