Anti-Gay Attack in Today's North Miami Mayor's Race
We must make politicians pay a price for homophobic campaigning. North Miami has had one of our state's most LGBT friendly city council's - let's respond to this outrageous ad!
FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW IN NORTH MIAMI AND URGE THEM TO VOTE TODAY
Frank Wolland's supporters have just sent out a desperate, anti-gay attack ad. In a clear appeal to homophobic prejudice, the ad photoshops outgoing Mayor Kevin Burns in a romantic pose with Mayoral candidate Andre Pierre on the bow of the Titanic under the headline "Don't worry Andre, they're only icebergs."
Mayor Burns, who is openly gay, has endorsed Andre Pierre. Under Mayor Burns leadership North Miami has made tremendous strides in supporting LGBT families including the passage of one of Florida's strongest Domestic Partnership policies. Andre Pierre has pledged to continue the city's efforts to be welcoming and inclusive of all residents.
We must not let this ugly brand of homophobic politics win the day. Please call everyone you know in North Miami. Let them know about Wolland's ugly attack on Andre Pierre and urge them to vote today.
This race will be decided by an extremely small number of votes - please forward now.
