THE DOLPHIN DEMOCRATS DEEPLY GRIEVE THE LOSS OF OUR LGBTA SISTERS AND BROTHERS IN ORLANDO

The Dolphin Democrats are deeply saddened by the tragic events at Pulse nightclub in Orlando . We will support, with our wounded hearts, those who have been lost and those who are suffering that loss as we work together for a better future. It is imperative for all LGBTA Americans to vote and give credence to those whose lives were lost.  Though their voices may not be heard anymore in this life, their voices will be heard eternally for their unwilling life’s sacrifice, because they vigorously embraced their own sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. The Dolphin Democrats will work to elect Democrats who are champions of Equality, Inclusion, and who stand firmly against hatred, so that these unwilling heroes sacrifice of life will not be forgotten, and will not have been in vain. Voting for Democrats IS voting for Love.The Dolphin Democrats  Deeply Grieve the Loss of our LGBTA Sisters and Brothers in Orlando

Rally to End Hate

On the 2 month anniversary of the Pulse massacre, Donald Trump and Marco Rubio came to Orlando to appear at a private “religious” conference with anti-gay zealots Mat Staver, David Lane and David Barton who are trying to orchestrate religious freedom bills and other anti-LGBT efforts across the state and country.

Vision Statement

“Our voices seek to instill awareness in the freedoms of a democratic society”. Educating future leaders and supporting the community at large. Maintain an ongoing rapport and increasing viability with political entities.”

Mission Statement

“Further, it shall be the mission of this organization to foster good will between gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) members of the Democratic Party and the community at large. We seek individual freedom in the framework of a just society and political freedom in the framework of meaningful participation by all citizens.”

 

President’s Message;

“Today is a day of pride and joy as is every Shabbat. I thought at one time that same sex marriage in the United States would never be achieved in our lifetime. Many toiled in the trenches to achieve equal rights for the LGBT community, so although we still have to fight for equality, much progress has been achieved.”

“You can’t have equality in one state and not another. Today is a historic milestone,”
