Vax UP, Mask UP, Wash UP…

Tomorrow’s regular meeting of the Stonewall Caucus has been canceled. 

We hope that you have a safe and fun Thanksgiving. 

Mahalo to all the members that contacted Congressman Case to ask him to vote for President Biden’s Build Back Better bill. Your calls were helpful and he did vote for it early this morning. Next stop the US Senate and Senator Hirono & Schatz are already on record saying they will vote YES on the historic bill.

2022 Candidate Surveys

2022 is a re-districting year which means every State elected official is up for election along with a majority of the County elected officials across the state. We have created 3 different surveys since at each level of Government there is different powers and items that need addressing. From passing the Equality Act 2021 at the Federal Level to ensuring that homeless unaccompanied minors have access to shelter at the County level!

Keep in mind that ONLY Democratic candidates can fill out our surveys.

So make sure your favorite candidate has our survey and that you send the link to their race.
County Candidates – https://forms.gle/GYS8dpfUgpvakAp38
State Candidates – https://forms.gle/MDuLCzUb2WZ2CTg19
Federal Candidates – https://forms.gle/u8As7jh93QsYAt9TA

How are the survey responses used? 

  1. Education – The Stonewall Caucus makes all the responses to our surveys public to help educate voters. 
  2. Advocacy – We then use them to help decide who we issue Statements of Support for in the Primary Election.

The deadline to fill out the surveys will be announced in 2022 and we will start posting the responses in early 2022.

Make sure YOU are ready to vote in 2022 and
update your voter registration TODAY!

State Convention Briefing

If you could not make the briefing click here for the recording and make sure your friends know about all the upcoming changes.

HMA Members Please Speak Out

It has come to our attention that the Hawaii Medical Association has hired Marc Alexander (anti-equality, anti-choice, sexual predator protector, & accused pedophile) as their new Executive Director. For those that do not know Marc led the battle against marriage equality and all LGBTQIA+ equality bills on behalf of his former employer – the Roman Catholic Church at the Hawai‘i State Legislature.
If you or someone you know is a member of the Hawai‘i Medical Association we are requesting that you contact the board directly to express your displeasure on this recent hire. If you or they want to go the extra mile, submit a letter to editor expressing your outrage/disappointment of Marc’s hiring.

DPH’s Fall Communication Fee Drive

To help keep the Democratic Party of Hawai‘i going one of the things the Party relies on is everyone that is able to is asked to donate their voluntary $25 Communications Fee (formerly known as Membership Dues). 

If you are able to and have not already done so for 2021 click here to make your donation.

The Party uses these funds to keep our Party going from paying for the website, keeping the database up to date and in working order, and all the other behind the scene things that allows us to operate as a Party so we can be Caucus. Without the Party’s support there is no way we would be able to operate and the Stonewall Caucus is Hawai‘i’s ONLY LGBTQIA+ focused policy, legislative, and political organization.  

As a Mahalo from the Stonewall Caucus to anyone that donates their voluntary Communications Fee using this link you will be listed (first name and last initial) as a co-sponsor for our 2022 State Convention activity. 

Mahalo for your consideration!
