2019 Elected LGBTQ Democrats endorsed by Stonewall DFL

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.

Nearly 6-months ago, we launched our community-led and community-centered campaign for the 9th Ward. Since then, we have talked to thousands of people that live or reside in the 9th Ward. We have had intentional conversations on the issues regarding housing, public safety, economic repair, and our vision for a just and connected community. Through this, we have built a powerful multi-racial, multi-generational, and working-class coalition. We are proud to have earned the DFL endorsement on the first ballot with 69% of the votes in a 5-way race.

Entering this race meant challenging the status quo, reaching out to communities that were not a part of the process, and ensuring their voices were at the table. I am proud of our campaigns’ work to bring many first-time caucus-goers and delegates into this process. We know that through our own organizing that this was a challenging process for our community to participate in and fully understand.

Ward 9 is often the catalyst for progressive change, yet we consistently see some of the lowest voter turnout in the City. This pattern signals intentional underinvestment in Black, Brown, Indigenous, Immigrant, and working-class communities by our government and political system.

The only way we can have a community-centered election is to tear down the barriers that keep our communities from showing up. Our campaign is ready for the real work of expanding the vote through community-based voter education, simplifying the process, and meeting working people where they are.

All t-shirts would be Union-made, Made in USA, and print on demand so you can buy the sizing you want! Poll bellow! 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️✨ https://t.co/bwLrcC92fK StonewallDFL photo
