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 Endorses Tanner Sunderman for MN State House 66A

“Tanner’s vision and proposals on housing, criminal justice, healthcare, and more address many of the persistent disparities LGBTQ+ people face,” said Samuel Doten, Stonewall DFL chair. “Stonewall DFL is proud to endorse Tanner. He will be a great legislator for 66A and for Minnesota.”

House District 66A includes the cities of Falcon Heights and Lauderdale, the majority of Roseville, and part of Saint Paul.

“I'm truly honored to have the endorsement of Stonewall DFL. Minnesota has a proud history of having at least one LGBTQ+ person serving in the State House since 1981, and I look forward to making sure that tradition continues. More importantly, I am excited to expand protections and rights for LGBTQ+ people in coordination with Stonewall's efforts,” said Sunderman.

Endorsed candidates meet or exceed Stonewall DFL’s screening criteria as set forth by its Political Support Committee and affirmed by at least 60 percent of the Stonewall DFL Board of Directors.

Stonewall DFL Endorses Davin Sokup for State Senate District 20

"We’re proud to endorse Davin Sokup for State Senate,” said Samuel Doten, Stonewall DFL chair. “Davin’s commitment to affordable healthcare, green jobs, protecting family farms, and ensuring students don’t graduate in deep debt appeal to a broad coalition of voters. His campaign will turn SD20 blue and also lead us to flipping the Minnesota Senate.”

Senate District 20 includes a majority of Rice County, all of Le Sueur County, and part of Scott County in southeastern Minnesota.

“It's an honor to receive an endorsement from Stonewall DFL. As a trans person, I'm so grateful for the support from folks in the LGBTQ community, and I look forward to being a voice for the queer community at the Capitol,” said Sokup.

Endorsed candidates meet or exceed Stonewall DFL’s screening criteria as set forth by its Political Support Committee and affirmed by at least 60 percent of the Stonewall DFL Board of Directors.

Residents of SD20 can attend their caucus on Tuesday, February 25 in support of Davin! caucus.dfl.org

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

First elected official endorsement for @SoniaNeculescu something tells me it won't be the last!

#TeamSonia has been snowballing into something huge and fierce the last week with @StonewallDFL @outfrontmn and @TwinCitiesDSA endorsements! https://t.co/iogtcRyeM6
