Focused. Our one and only aim is to defeat anti-equality New York State Senators. Once we replace enough anti-equality senators with pro-equality senators, we will close up shop.
Nonpartisan. We will be targeting Democrats and Republicans. We know from the December 2, 2009 marriage vote that 30 Republicans and 8 Democrats do not support equality. Each one of these senators is fair game.
Strategic. We will be smart and methodical about where and when we target senators from both sides of the aisle. Working with our partners, we will engage in primary, general, and special elections. We will determine where our efforts and resources will have the most impact in a race that involves an anti-equality incumbent who is being challenged by a pro-equality candidate. While 38 senators deserve defeat because of this vote, our focus will be on the best opportunities to defeat our enemies. Our campaigns will be targeted and intense.
Inclusive. We know that 38 New York State Senators voted against marriage equality. But many of these senators have also stood in the way of important bills like the Gender Identity Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) and the Dignity for All Students Act. Targeted senators will not just be anti-marriage equality senators, but also those who block other bills that would provide equality and safety for all LGBT New Yorkers.
