Who we are
Article II: Purpose
A. We have formed the STONEWALL DEMOCRATIC CLUB in recognition of the growing awareness within the Democratic Party that lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual people (LGBTQIA) should be fully and equally represented both in the community and the national body politic.
STONEWALL DEMOCRATIC CLUB is open to all Democrats who subscribe to our goals and purposes regardless of their sexual orientation.
B. It shall be out purpose to make the Democratic Party, the body politic and its elected officials, responsive to, and responsible for, the needs of all people, particularly, though not exclusively, the LGBTQIA and feminist communities.
C. We shall seek to eliminate discrimination based upon real or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, race, age, and/or disability; promote freedom of choice and human and civil rights; and further economic and social justice for all people.
D. Further, we shall seek to promote legislation in conjunction with our goals and purpose and to vigorously oppose legislation which oppresses and/or restricts basic human rights. We will also encourage LGBTQIA and feminist candidates for public office who are competent, qualified, viable and who are registered to vote as members of the Democratic Party.
E. We firmly believe that we have a responsibility to ourselves and to society in general to affirm our role in the political arena.
F. In pursuit of our goals, the STONEWALL DEMOCRATIC CLUB will work within the Democratic Party and other institutions.
