Democratic gubernatorial candidate state Sen. Wendy Davis addressed Cathedral of Hope at its 9 a.m. service on Sept. 7 and received an award from the congregation.

Cathedral and Hope for Peace and Justice presented Davis an Advocacy Award “for speaking truth to power on behalf of women.”

In her address to the congregation, Davis said as governor she would always embrace the LGBT community.

“I will remember you, because I am one of you,” she said.

Republican candidate Atty. Gen. Greg Abbott has also been invited to address the church, but has not responded to the invitation.
