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.

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.

Stonewall DFL Endorses Julie Strahan for Roseville City Council

“Stonewall DFL is pleased to announce our endorsement of Julie Strahan for Roseville City Council. Julie’s platform is to fight for our neighbors, protect unions, and invest in our communities in a finically responsible, and sustainable way. Julie is invested in fighting for human rights— it is the second reason she is running for public office as listed on her website. Julie Strahan will be the advocate Roseville needs on their City Council,” said Stonewall DFL Field Director Jack Fischer.

The Roseville City Council race is for 2 at-large seats. Strahan faces the two incumbents.

“I’m running for Roseville City Council because I believe Roseville should welcome all residents to fully engage in our community. ‘Radical hospitality’, the practice of not only inviting people to participate, but removing the barriers that prevent them from being engaged, involves building trusted relationships, while working toward equity, inclusion, and justice,” said Strahan.

Stonewall DFL encourages constituents of Roseville to vote for Strahan in the November 3 general election.

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.
