Chelsea Rustad for Tumwater City Council
Friends, I am excited to announce that my campaign for Tumwater City Council position 5 has been endorsed by Equal Rights Washington!
From their website:
"Equal Rights Washington (ERW) is Washington's statewide lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) advocacy and community outreach organization. ERW's mission is to ensure and promote dignity, safety, and equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Washingtonians."
From the ERW endorsement page:
"Equal Rights Washington (c4) plays a role in elevating LGBTQ-related issues to the forefront during an election cycle. ERW’s non-partisan endorsement committee uses a specific set of carefully developed criteria in making our endorsements. We back candidates who have a track record of support for LGBTQ equality in a number of areas, and who advocate on behalf of the issues we support, such as trans justice, gender and racial equity, anti-bullying and banning conversion therapy for minors."I am so proud and honored to have earned the endorsement of this incredible organization. Together, we will fight to protect the rights of every LGBTQ individual in Washington state, and I will ensure that LGBTQ voices in the city of Tumwater are centered and represented always. Thank you for the important work you do!
