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.
Stonewall DFL is a community caucus of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. As a membership-based organization, members vote to elect our officers, endorse candidates, and shape the future of our movement. Founded in 1980, we were the first constituency caucus of the DFL and we continue to be a powerful channel to impact the DFL Party.
Our organization sits at the nexus of Democratic elected officials and the LGBTQ community. By developing deep relationships with candidates and officeholders, we shape the public conversation and hold officials accountable to an inclusive, intersectional vision for LGBTQ equity.
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.
