Wilt Gains Endorsement from Stonewall Democrats of Western New York

ROCHESTER, NY: Robin Wilt (D-WFP), running for New York Senate in the 56th District, has earned the endorsement of Stonewall Democrats of Western New York for her unflagging support of civil rights for all New Yorkers.

“The erosion of civil rights for any minority group should not be tolerated at any level,” Wilt said.  “That’s why I would use statewide office to advocate for federal legislation that would end the practice of abridging LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] rights.  Our Founders, our champions of women’s rights, and our pioneers in the struggle for African-American equality understood that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

“Stonewall Democrats of Western New York is the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Democratic voice in western New York,” the organization’s website explains. “Our mission is to advocate for the LGBT community within the WNY area government and the Democratic Party.”

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, particularly the right to marry.  Under Wilt’s leadership, PDAGV coordinated phone banking for legislative drives on behalf of marriage equality and held public forums on the issue.
