Tammy Baldwin

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis.

Pride Fund to End Gun Violence PAC — America’s only national LGBTQ political organization focused solely on gun violence prevention — today announced its endorsement of Tammy Baldwin for her re-election to the US Senate.

Pride Fund endorsed Tammy for her commitment to fighting for LGBTQ equality and her support of commonsense gun safety reforms.

“Tammy Baldwin made history as the first openly gay US Senator, and she has given a unique voice to the LGBTQ community as a whole,” said our executive director, Jason Lindsay. “Tammy Baldwin has repeatedly proven her commitment to passing sensible gun legislation which is supported by her F-rating from the NRA. Baldwin’s support for comprehensive background checks and preventing those convicted of hate crimes from owning firearms are two gun safety measures that will undoubtedly save lives. Senator Baldwin’s leadership on civil rights issues and her outspoken position on commonsense gun reform proves that she is the kind of leader we need in Congress.”

In the Senate, Tammy Baldwin stands up to special interests and stands up for Wisconsinites.

Her unique voice has been powerful for the LGBTQ community, giving a voice to Americans who are underrepresented in our nation’s capital.

With recent student walkouts demanding action from Congress and the monumental March for Our Lives just around the corner, gun reform activists are making their voice heard all across the country. This rising tide of activism will create a driving force behind Baldwin’s campaign, as more and more Americans demand that their politicians stand up to the NRA.  Pride Fund looks forward to working with Tammy Baldwin to ensure she is re-elected in 2018 and stands shoulder-to-shoulder with her in the fight to keep Americans safe from preventable gun violence and ensure that LGBTQ rights are protected and advanced in the years to come.
