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.

STRIKE OVER! OUR MEMBERS WON!!!! A tentative agreement was reached this morning and approved by the members this afternoon. The new agreement offsets every penny of in-network healthcare cost increases and every penny of premium increases with wages. ON TOP OF THAT it delivers the biggest raises in the history of the contract.

Thank you to all the Unions, organizations and individuals who supported our members in their fight to achieve a fair contract for their families.

Our members stood together, stood strong, and sent a message to every employer in MN, ND, SD, and IA that Local 120 will stand behind its members until we get a fair contract.

Starting tomorrow, both our members and management will put this behind them and go back to work for the customers of Murphy Warehouse!

Thank you again for all the support!

“I’m excited to endorse this slate of candidates,” said Samuel Doten, caucus chair. “This is a well-rounded group that is experienced, grounded in community, and incredibly resourceful. Our endorsed candidates are dedicated to understanding and supporting the LGBTQ students and staff of SPPS.”

St. Paul Public Schools serves over 37,000 students in the city of St. Paul. It has a seven member board, all of whom are elected at-large citywide. Four seats are up for election in 2019. Ellis and Marchese are incumbents first elected in 2015. Allen and Kopp are both first-time candidates. Additionally, Allen is a member of the LGBTQ community.

Chauntyll Allen: “I am really excited about being endorsed by the LGBTQ Caucus of Minnesota, Stonewall DFL. I have led my life with a great deal of confidence and family support in my journey. This strength provides me the ability to be of support to others in fighting for their rights and beliefs. This endorsement means a lot to me personally.”

Zuki Ellis: “I am proud to be endorsed by an organization which is the DFL’s oldest and most active community caucus and the oldest continuously-operating political advocacy organization promoting LGBTQ equality across the state of Minnesota.”

Jessica Kopp: “I am so proud to be endorsed by Stonewall DFL because I know the value of committed, skilled, and compassionate partners in the work of building strong communities. Together, we can build schools across St. Paul where everyone can learn, and everyone belongs.”

Steve Marchese: “I am very honored to be endorsed by the Stonewall DFL in my re-election campaign. I look forward to working together to strengthen St. Paul Public Schools' capacity to meet the social, emotional and educational needs of LGBTQ students and students of color, as well as bring greater equity in resources and outcomes to the district.”

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.

Jussie is my friend - a very talented & beautiful human being. It is so hurtful that homophobic haters would dare hurt someone so loving and giving. I'm dedicated to finding the culprits and bringing them to justice. Jussie did not deserve to be harmed by anyone!
