Karla is proud to be endorsed by Equality Illinois, and she is proud to be an out, queer candidate. Karla spent 21 years of her young adult life exclusively with female partners. She knows what it feels like to be rejected from your faith community and to hide who you love from your employer. Karla marched, signed petitions, and sent letters in the 1990’s to support marriage equality. Now, she will work to encourage diversity and sensitivity training in our schools, our health care sector, and our law enforcement. Karla supports inclusion of other gender identities and recognizing the need for trans people to have a box on forms for education, health, and public records that reflects who they are, and for health care services of all kinds to be prepared to be inclusive.
