Stonewall Endorses Georgette Gomez in CA-53

Georgette Gomez, a progressive Democrat running for Congress in California’s 53rd congressional district, has won the endorsement of the Stonewall Democratic Club, the nation’s oldest LGBTQ, progressive, and feminist political advocacy organization.

“We are thrilled to endorse Georgette Gomez and stand united in her mission to stand up to Trump’s dangerous agenda,” said Stonewall Political Vice President Jane Wishon. “Stonewall shares Georgette’s vision of combating climate change, defending immigrant’s rights, expanding affordable housing, and reducing homelessness.”

If elected, Gomez will become the first queer Latina in U.S. congressional history.

“We need diverse, queer voices in Congress,” said Stonewall Public and Media Relations Director Alex Mohajer. “Georgette will represent our community well, ensure our voices are heard and advocate for her constituents with distinction.”

Los Angeles, CA – Yesterday, the LA Registrar-Recorder approved a petition calling for signatures to potentially recall Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón. The Stonewall Democratic Club endorsed Gascón in his bid to replace Jackie Lacey last November and Los Angeles Democrats agreed, voting overwhelmingly to bring change to LA's failing criminal justice system. We stand by this endorsement and strongly oppose these recall efforts.

"Gascón has made good on his promise to hold criminals accountable while moving Los Angeles forward towards a restorative justice model. The same bad-faith actors who support the bogus recall of Governor Gavin Newsom are now attempting to circumvent the will of the people and burn millions of taxpayer dollars to have their way," said Stonewall President Lester Aponte.

Stonewall will fight this recall and ensure that democracy prevails here in LA County.
