Carolyn on LGBTQ+ Rights

In the past 10 years, our country has taken immense steps forward to ensure equal rights for members of our LGBTQ+ communities. I am proud to have worked for Senator Ron Wyden when he became one of the first Members of Congress to come out in favor of marriage equality. 

While we have taken major steps forward, including the Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality, we still have a long way to go. I will always oppose discriminatory bills aimed at stripping rights away from the LGBTQ+ community. I oppose the Trump Administration's efforts to ban transgender individuals from being allowed to serve in the military, and I will fight to ensure anyone who wants to serve and make that sacrifice has the chance to do so.
