leader in civil rights as it has for decades.
“Cathy Woolard’s race for mayor of Atlanta is one of the most exciting and important in the country for LGBT equality,” said Martine Apopca, vice president of political operations and communications for the Victory Fund. “We endorsed Cathy more than a year before her election be- cause of her visionary leadership on the City Council and because her candidacy represents an important step toward a more inclusive South – where LGBT elected officials are severely underrepresented. Cathy has proven before and will prove again that the right candidate with the right message can win anywhere.”
Woolard will take to the streets for Pride, something she has done for decades.
“I’ve been walking in the Atlanta Pride Parade since the early 1980s,” Woolard said. “I look forward to it every year, and none more than 2016. Pride is a great way to for us to come together and demonstrate solidarity and equality, to listen to others on how to improve our neighborhood, our city and our state.”
If you are a Woolard fan, and looking for a group to walk with in the Pride Parade, the campaign has extended an invitation to walk with them on its Facebook page, www.cathyforatlanta.com.
