We are a multipartisan organization working in electoral politics for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights by helping candidates who are committed to helping us secure those rights.

We stand for the banning of discrimination based on sexual/affectional orientation, gender, transgender identity, or race in work, housing, accommodations, and public services.  We work for domestic partner benefits and the recognition of same sex marriages.  We support women's rights, including comparable worth and the right to choose a safe and legal abortion.  We advocate continued use of affirmative action to end racism.

We begin our work by sending all candidates questionnaires on our issues.  Our members study the signed and dated answers of those candidates who reply, taking into consideration their records as well, and then vote to endorse those who prove to be our allies.  more of what we do.

And GSPCGP members do more!
  GSPCGP members circulate official nominating petitions during prescribed periods before elections to help those candidates we have endorsed in previous elections to get on the ballot when they run for reelection or for a new office.

Throughout the year, we help members and friends of our community register to vote.  We help voters, office holders and candidates for office understand the importance of our issues to our community, to our friends and families, and to the larger society.  top.gif (906 bytes) back.gif (904 bytes)
