Stein Club members unite to endorse ticket
Washington D.C.- The Gertrude Stein Democratic Club voted to endorse all Democratic candidates on the ballot in November following a town hall discussion featuring Democratic candidates for mayor and city council.
Stein Democrats' President Angela Peoples said "The goal for the town hall was to allow our members to do what we do best, to engage in the process and politics of electing Democratic candidates who share our values and will work with our community to improve the lives of LGBT people in the District of Columbia."
This vote follows an enthusiastic month of Pride celebration by the Stein club that focused on registering new voters, sponsoring Pride activities with the Black, Latino, Trans and Youth groups, and hosting a fundraiser for the Wanda Alston Foundation.
"The Stein Club has earned a reputation for pushing our party leaders on LGBT issues and we will continue to hold our elected officials accountable on policies and issues that important to our community." said Peoples. "Last night's vote solidifies our support for the Democratic candidates and the club's positions as the leading voice in advocating for LGBT issues and politics in the District."
