Kirsten Gillibrand

Kirsten has long stood side by side with the LGBTQ community: She was an early supporter for marriage equality and repealing DOMA, took an instrumental role in ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, ensured HIV and AIDS patients’ access to health care and support, and she has led the fight for the rights of transgender people to serve in our military. She has consistently spoken out against the rising rate of hate crimes against LGBTQ people—especially trans women of color—and the bigotry that has emboldened it. She is also fighting for the rights of LGBTQ people to work, get housing, adopt and foster children, serve in the military, and go to school without discrimination.

We banned the box in our city because you may have had a hiccup in your life and been arrested for something, but now you want to get your life on track and we don't ask that question so your file won't go into the garbage can and you never get a chance to get a job.

Amy Klobuchar

We must beat back decades of systemic racism and inequality. Amy believes this begins with early-childcare and fixing our education system, addressing racism in health care such as disparities in maternal and infant mortality rates, ending housing discrimination so that everyone can afford to rent an apartment and own a home in a good neighborhood for their kids, and tackling disparities in wages and in retirement savings.

The democratic party talks about empowering women, and I am going to suggest to you all that the best way to help that waitress that is getting harassed by her boss, or the single mom who is stuck in an abusive relationship, the best way to empower those women, to improve their situations is to put $1000/month into their hands. We can either talk about empowering women, or we can do something about it, and I say we do something about it!

Who you are or who you love should never keep you from pursuing the American dream. It’s that simple. We must ensure that all LGBTQ+ Americans can receive a high quality education, work toward their dream job, access affordable healthcare, start a family, and serve in the military without discrimination.
