LPAC Statement on 2020 Democratic Primary
Washington, DC (October 7, 2019) – LPAC, the only organization devoted to building the political power of LGBTQ women, is taking the unprecedented step of supporting Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Amy Klobuchar for President. We also applaud Pete Buttigieg for becoming the first viable LGBTQ presidential candidate.
For our country and values, we believe that any of these leading women candidates will be the best able to repair the damage done by Donald Trump and Mike Pence's regressive, anti-women, and anti-LGBTQ posture and policies.
We will monitor misogynistic positions or statements that undermine or question these women's capabilities, viability or competence, whether by Republicans or Democrats. We encourage our members and supporters to do the same.
Accordingly, LPAC will:
Applaud the women candidates when they uphold LPAC’s core values of LGBTQ equality, women’s equality, and social justice.
Encourage our audiences to contribute to the candidates we are championing to increase the viability and the chances of a woman finally taking the White House in 2020.
Call out misogyny directed at the women running for president, in our social media accounts and by any other means at our disposal.
