President, San Francisco Board of Supervisors
I am truly humbled to have received the endorsement of the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club in my race for the 17th Assembly District. The oldest LGBT Democratic Club in the United States, Alice has made a profound impact on San Francisco, California and American politics.
As someone inspired by the civil rights movement, it has been so personally important for me to be a stalwart ally of the LGBT community throughout my entire life. Over the years, in addition to being one of the founding members of Asian Pacific Islander Equality, I have been honored to work alongside leaders from the Alice B. Toklas Club to fight for marriage equality and equal rights, for LGBT seniors, youth and immigrant families, for HIV/AIDS funding, and against bigotry and discrimination.
Representing and fighting for the LGBT community will be a top priority of mine in Sacramento, and I look forward to working with you to make San Francisco and California better for all of us, particularly our diverse LGBT community.
