HONOR PAC honors Gloria Molina 

May 15, 2023

gloriamolina2023b

HONOR PAC was founded nearly two decades ago by a very small group of LGBTQ+ Latina/e/o men and women who believed the political voice and leadership of our community needed to be heard and uplifted. Supervisor Gloria Molina was one of the first elected officials who stood next to HONOR PAC and ensured that our mission, efforts, and our endorsed candidates won! Supervior Molina helped us make our country and communities stronger and safer for all LGBTQ+ Latina/e/o individuals and their families.

¡Gloria Molina vive en HONOR PAC! We will never forget her and her fight for full and complete equality for all!

¡Que Viva Gloria Molina! ¡Que descanses en paz y poder esta Chicana, Luchadora!

Con honor,
HONOR PAC Board of Directors

Statement from HONOR PAC - H.R. 734

April 22, 2023

H.R. 734 2023 created by Ada Kane

STOP Anti-Trans Legislation Today!

Friends and Supporters, 

HONOR PAC is outraged that Republicans in Congress continue to target and attack our transgender siblings across the nation! 

Now they are attacking our transgender kids, specifically women and girls! H.R. 734 is an attempt to create a nationwide ban that would prohibit trans women and girls from participating in school sports - a clear violation of Title IX! It has been advanced by a party line vote by Republicans— and we need to make this stop.  We know President Biden would veto this if it gets to his desk; we have to ensure that it doesn’t even get that far! 

Like any child, transgender children and youth deserve a chance to participate in school sports. Sports help develop skill sets that help prepare them for life.

We can’t let these extremists and their enablers advance this divisive agenda. We must protect our trans kids wherever they may live!  HONOR PAC is fully committed to defending our transgender siblings and your support is needed to help us continue the fight! 

The MAGA sector of extremists in the Republican Party continue to chip away at our democracy targeting women, immigrants and transgender individuals and families.  HONOR PAC will fight in every way possible to ensure full equality for all. YOU are an essential part of this fight through your financial support! 

Please make a contribution to HONOR PAC at any amount — help us stop this Anti-Trans legislation. 

Donate to HONOR PAC!

With your contributions we can continue our strong support of Congress member Robert Garcia’s bill, The International Human Rights Defense Act, ensuring the rights and safety of all LGBTQ+ people across the world! 

HONOR PAC has stood for close to 20 years fighting for and advancing Latina/e/o LGBTQ+ rights and full equality!  Thank you for sharing our belief that oppressive policy tactics need to end.

An attack to one of us, is an attack to all of us!

HONOR PAC Statement on Trump's rollback of LGBTQ+ health care protections
June 12, 2020

On the 4th anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting, in the middle of Pride Month, and in the midst of a global pandemic, the Trump Administration "formally rolled back an Obama-era policy that protected LGBTQ patients from discrimination and required robust language translation services".

According to Politico, this reversal in health policy will allow health care providers to discriminate against transgender patients and women seeking abortions. "The Obama administration had issued the first-time protections for LGBTQ patients under a nondiscrimination clause in the Affordable Care Act, citing concerns from advocates these patients had a harder time accessing necessary care”...Read More

HONOR PAC Statement on Supreme Court Announcement
April 22, 2019

Since the election of Donald Trump, the LGBTQ community has been patronized and discriminated to the utmost degree. His actions have gone against the ideals of our country's Founders by opposing our most basic rights to love, liberty, and pursuit of happiness as Americans and contributors. With the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh, our LGBT rights are hanging in the balance.

On Monday, April 22, 2019, the Supreme Court said that it will decide whether existing civil rights laws ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, a question that has divided the nation's lower courts...Read More

This morning, the Supreme Court of the United States has supported the bigotry and hate of this President; with a 5-4 ruling, they have discriminated against our transgender brothers and sisters in the Military. Indeed elections have consequences...Read More
