NOT FOR THE PEOPLE; WITH THE PEOPLE
I'm putting my experience to work.
I'm DeShanna Neal (she/they), a queer mother of four and community organizer. I became a public figure when my daughter Trinity expressed her desire to receive gender confirming medical treatments as a teenager. I fought for and won the right for Trinity to become the first child in Delaware to receive gender confirmation surgery via Medicaid. Despite the controversy and criticism I've received, I stand firm in my beliefs of racial justice, accessible medical and mental healthcare, and LGBTQ+ rights, and continue to fight not only for my family, but for all families in need in my community.
WHY AM I RUNNING NOW?
I’m running now because I am tired of conversation without action and partisan division over issues of human rights. I’m running to bring not only equality, but equity, education, and accessibility for all.
My goal is building a Delaware we can all be proud of. Even before running, I have spoken with locally and nationally elected officials to fight for the most at-risk in Delaware. As your representative, I can do more than talk: I can bring the change we need to District 13.
