Endorsement Interviews Fall 2019
Sep 14 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Location TBD

Sep 15 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Our Freedom Fund Political Action Committee (PAC) allows Cleveland Stonewall Democrats to offer financial support to worthy candidates in Ohio. Through our endorsement process we evaluate and vet candidates for local, state, and federal offices representing the greater Cleveland area. We support candidates that are committed to protecting and enhancing the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, asexual and intersex(LGBTQIA+) individuals in our community and who support issues of importance to the LGBTQIA+ community.  Our ability to influence elections and support candidates is made possible by contributions to the Freedom Fund PAC.
