David Weprin for U.S. House of Representatives, 9th Congressional District
David Weprin has been an outspoken supporter of the LGBT community for many years, and he has consistently voted to support marriage equality as an Assemblyman.  His opponents are trying to use his marriage votes against him in their campaign to win the seat.  Plus, the national Republican party is pouring large amounts of resources into this race so they can claim to have a mandate from the American people for their radical agenda. Let's make sure David wins.


Volunteers are needed for Get Out the Vote efforts on September 10th, 12th and 13th.  People are needed to make phone calls, go door-to-door, and stand outside polling locations.  To volunteer, please contact Brian Linder at Brian.A.Linder@gmail.com or (516) 205-2531.

Jesus Gonzalez for State Assembly, 54th Assembly District
LID is proud to support Jesus Gonzalez, who is running on the Working Families Party line.  The Democrat in this race is both anti-choice and anti-marriage equality.  Jesus Gonzalez, on the other hand, is a fresh new voice with a progressive vision for his district.  He has been endorsed by New Kings Democrats, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, District Leader Lincoln Restler and many other progressive leaders and groups.


Volunteers are needed for phonebanking at 2 Nevins Street every weeknight from 5pm to 9pm and on Saturday from 10am to 2pm.  The campaign also needs people to canvass the district on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Pollsite captains are needed for Election Day from 6am to 9pm.  Additional volunteers are needed on Election Day from 6am to 10am and from 5pm to 9pm.  Please contribute or volunteer here, or contact the volunteer coordinator, Ivan Luevanos, directly at iluevanos@gmail.com.


Cheryl Gonzales for Countywide Civil Court Judge (Kings County)
Judge Gonzales is currently a Housing Court judge who is widely respected by her peers.  On the first day of marriage equality, she volunteered to preside over the civil weddings of dozens of same-gender couples in Brooklyn.  Judge Gonzales has a deep knowledge of the law and brings a human touch to her courtroom.  She was also endorsed recently by The New York Times.
