Indiana Stonewall Democrats Endorse J.D. Ford for State Senate

On Wednesday, November 8th the Indiana Stonewall Democrats Executive Board voted unanimously to endorse JD Ford for Indiana Senate District 29. In their first endorsement of the 2018 Election cycle, the ISD Board has chosen to recognize a pillar of the LGBTQ+ community and seasoned professional who understands the importance of communicating with and delivering results for voters. Mr. Ford would be the first openly LGBTQ+ representative ever elected to the Indiana General Assembly.

“Hoosier Democrats are really excited about JD’s candidacy because we know that he will be a fierce advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and concentrate on policies that will make life better for all Hoosiers” said Josh Peters, President of Indiana Stonewall Democrats.

If elected to the Indiana Senate, JD Ford will be committed to ensuring civil rights protections for LGBTQ+ Hoosiers, advocating for bias-motivated crimes legislation, bringing sanity to the medical marijuana conversation, and calling for nonpartisan redistricting reform.  Over the next year, the Indiana Stonewall Democrats will get to work canvassing, phone banking, and fundraising for JD Ford to ensure that we send him to the Indiana Statehouse.

It is time we had a member of our community in the Indiana State House!
