On June 26, 2015, we celebrated the Supreme Court’s landmark civil rights case ruling regarding same-sex marriage. The Obergefell v. Hodges decision ushered in long overdue marriage equality to millions of Americans who were otherwise denied. A year later, I married my partner of five years. We, as a community (bolstered by our allies), had been fighting long before 2004 when the first state started allowing gays and lesbians to marry. We still have a long way to go.
I will fight for all my LGBTQ sisters and brothers by working to pass laws to prevent discrimination against the LGBTQ Community.
- Passing the Equality Act
- Increasing federal funding levels for HIV/AIDS services and research.
- Safe Schools Improvement Act. Kim believes every student deserves to have a safe space in an environment conductive to learning. Students will not flourish in an environment in which they fear.
