Bay State Stonewall Democrats Endorse Chelsea Kline

Stonewall Democrats Endorse Chelsea Kline for Senate
Group Says Kline will be a strong advocate for LGBTQ+ community in Senate

NORTHAMPTON -- The Bay State Stonewall Democrats, a statewide LGBTQ+ advocacy organization, today announced its endorsement of Chelsea Kline, a Democrat running for the Hampshire, Franklin & Worcester Senate seat.

“Chelsea Kline has the courage, compassion, and commitment needed to be a strong advocate for LGBTQ+ people,” said the Bay State Stonewall Democrats in a statement. “We are thrilled to support Chelsea Kline, a member of our community and a fighter for equal rights for everyone.”

“I’m proud to have the endorsement of the Bay State Stonewall Democrats because their work has had such an incredible impact on the lives of LGBTQ+ people in Massachusetts,” said Chelsea Kline. “I look forward to continuing this advocacy for our community in the State Senate.”

The Bay State Stonewall Democrats has advocated for LGBTQ+ rights in Massachusetts for thirty years. They played major roles in fights for non-discrimination laws, for marriage equality, and for the Transgender Equal Rights Law that is now under attack from right-wing forces. Both Kline’s campaign and the Bay State Stonewall Democrats plan to fight hard to defend the Transgender Equal Rights Law in Massachusetts, and to encourage voters to vote yes on Question 3.

Chelsea Kline is a higher education leader and social justice advocate running on progressive issues like repairing our social safety net, protecting our environment, fully-funding our schools, supporting our farms and local businesses, and Medicare for All. In addition to the endorsement from Bay State Stonewall Democrats, she also has earned the endorsements of progressive coalitions Mass Alliance and Progressive Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus, and the American Federation of Teachers - Massachusetts. She is the only candidate in the race endorsed by a union, and the only candidate supported by statewide progressive advocacy organizations.
