Senator Bonoff for Congress

On October 12th OutFront Minnesota Action announced their endorsement of Terri Bonoff for Congress in Minnesota's 3rd Congressional District.
OutFront Action is the state’s leading organization in building equity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Minnesotans by championing policy and candidates that fight for LGBTQ equity. If elected, Senator Terri Bonoff would replace Representative Paulsen who has consistently voted against the LGBTQ community.
“As an organization OutFront Action feels compelled to support Senator Bonoff given her strong record of supporting the LGBTQ marriage equality efforts as co-author of the bill that granted same-sex couples the right to marry in 2014 as well as supporting a call to ban conversion therapy on LGBTQ youth” said Monica Meyer, Executive Director of OutFront Minnesota. Meyer’s also noted how Bonoff will be a key ally in Washington to help pass the Equality Act. “The momentum to really have a pro-LGBTQ congress is with us, Terri Bonoff is with us, and we are with her
“I am incredibly proud to receive the endorsement and support of OutFront Action,” Bonoff stated, “This organization provides incredible advocacy for the LGBTQ community in Minnesota. Securing equal rights for all people is a top priority of mine and is an important value statement in the third district. I have never been more proud of the third district than when we resoundingly rejected the marriage amendment in 2012. While my opponent received an award for his efforts to write this ban into the constitution, the following year, I was honored to be a co-author of the freedom to marry bill and received an outpouring of support from not only my constituents, but from all across the state. OutFront, the third district, and the state of Minnesota can count on me to be a strong ally in Congress.”
