It's been over 20 years since Travis County elected a candidate, who is openly gay, to a county-wide elected position. Seeing LGBTQIA+ elected leaders is critical to the continued fight for LGBTQIA+ equality. For our July monthly meeting, Stonewall Democrats of Austin will welcome Laurie Eiserloh, candidate for Travis County Attorney. Join us for an opportunity to learn more about Laurie Eiserloh, her work in LGBTQIA+ civil rights and justice, what it's like to be an openly gay candidate seeking elected office in Travis County, and her vision for criminal justice reform in Travis County.

Laurie Eiserloh is Stonewall Democrats of Austin's endorsed candidate for Travis County Attorney. We will be phone banking for Laurie's campaign to remind voters and encourage voters to vote to make history in electing Travis County's first openly gay County Attorney. https://www.electlaurie.com/
