Excerpt from our
How will you get the LGBTQIA+ vote as a Green Party candidate?
First, I am comfortable being OUT and itís important for me to advocate for the needs of our public educators, students and families that are LGBTQIA+. Second, the Green Party states in that it directly works at combating homophobia and other violence against our community, this stance is a true testament to why Green is the only way to improve social constructs. Moreover, the Texas Green Party bylaws recently adopted changes that include intentional language that supports anti-oppression, anti-homophobia, anti-transgender and anti-capitalism. I am proud of our chapterís work in this area and it will be a significant talking point during outreach, especially with people looking for better options than the Republican and Democratic parties.
