Post-Election Recap: The Blue Wave and The Rainbow Wave

Thank you, Stonewall Democrat!

If you canvassed or phone banked or contributed or text banked or got the word out on social media or simply voted, you were part of The Blue Wave and The Rainbow Wave that hit on Tuesday. You have helped transform lives in the LGBTQ community both in New York and across the country.

A record number of LGBTQ candidates were elected into office throughout the U.S. including wins in state houses, for state-wide offices, and for members of Congress.  Here in New York, we saw red seats flip blue in Congressional Districts and now local Congressmembers Eliot Engel and Jerrold Nadler will take committee chairmanships. 

And in the State Senate?  Wow, what a change!  Senate Democrats have never held as strong a majority as they will in 2019.  This opens the door for forward-moving legislation in all arenas and especially for the LGBTQ Community.

For Stonewall Democrats, having endorsed and fought for the candidates that will move us forward, we'll pivot from our roles as campaign operatives to community advocates. We'll help you reach out to your state legislators to push for GENDA, a ban on conversion therapy, gestational surrogacy rights, getting benefits to LGBTQ veterans, stopping bullying of LGBTQ kids in schools and so. much. more.

Our meetings in 2019 will highlight progress we can make, better educate us those issues, and provide the tools to make change happen including postcards, making calls, and membership trips to Albany. 

With the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and a full legislative agenda, SDNYC will be buzzing with activity next year.  Can you help support us in 2019 by joining as a member/renewing your annual membership today?

In addition to being able to vote for the endorsement of the next New York City Public Advocate and other races next year, you'll receive first word on special events, and moreover, provide us the tools to advocate for LGBTQ New Yorkers as we make amazing progress in the coming year!
