Wilt Earns Empire State Pride Agenda Endorsement

ROCHESTER, NY: Robin Wilt (D-WFP), running for New York Senate in the 56th district, has earned the endorsement of the bi-partisan Empire State Pride Agenda for her grassroots leadership and steadfast support of civil rights for all New Yorkers.

The Empire State Pride Agenda is a leading statewide civil rights and political advocacy organization committed to realizing justice and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) citizens. 

“The erosion of civil rights for any minority group should not be tolerated at any jurisdictional level,” Wilt said.  “That’s why I would use statewide office to advocate for federal legislation that would end the practice of abridging LGBT rights.  Our Founders understood that when rights can be denied to some, they are in jeopardy for all.”

In her role as co-founder of the Genesee Valley Chapter of Progressive Democrats of America (PDAGV), Wilt has been a strong grassroots advocate for LGBT rights.  PDAGV conducted public educational forums and coordinated phone banking for legislative drives on behalf of marriage equality.

In December 2009, the New York State Senate blocked a bill that would have provided for marriage equality for all New Yorkers.  “As a senator, I would not only sponsor marriage equality legislation, but champion that legislation through passage,” Wilt said.
