The Pride Agenda has launched a campaign to defeat Hiram Monserrate, one of the 38 State Senators who voted no on the marriage equality bill on December 2, 2009. No only did he vote no, but he broke his previous commitment to support marriage equality when it came to the Senate floor for a vote.
Monserrate was convicted last year of assaulting his girlfriend, which led to his recent expulsion from the State Senate. But now he’s running to try to get back into the Senate. Our candidate in the March 16 Special Election is popular Assemblymember Jose Peralta, who has consistently voted in favor of marriage equality, transgender civil rights and other important LGBT issues.
Donate now to our campaign to get rid of Hiram Monserrate: "Don't Get Mad, Get Even." This is our first chance to replace an anti-LGBT Senator with a strong, pro-LGBT Senator. Every dollar that you contribute will go to making sure this shameful legislator does not return to the State Senate.
If you’re mad about the December 2 marriage vote, now is the time to get even. Join us in taking out Hiram Monserrate and electing Jose Peralta.
