Honor PAC election endorsements
HONOR PAC is a Latino/a LGBT political action committee. They have issued their endorsements for the upcoming election. Find them on Facebook.
To advocate for the political empowerment of Latina/o LGBT communities.
I have no affiliation with them, but this is a group I respect.
Dear HONOR PAC supporter:
We have some uninvited guests in our community working to force their extreme conservative ideals onto California’s Latino families. They need to be stopped.
Earlier this month, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), which masterminded the passing of Proposition 8, announced a partnership with other right-wing organizations to launch a Latino voter outreach program titled “Tu Valores.” These groups sponsored a statewide bus tour and produced Spanish-language radio and television ads to deceive Latino voters into electing anti-choice and anti-LGBT rights candidates. Our community pushed back and their messages were met with protest. In East Los Angeles and in other communities, the Tu Valores bus skipped its scheduled stop to avoid the unfriendly reception.
Now, NOM is using the same divisive hate-laced tactics to get their very own candidate Andy Pugno elected to the State Assembly.
Pugno, the architect of Prop. 8, is too extreme to be in the California legislature. He’s fought against a woman’s right to choose, even in the case of rape and incest, and stands opposed to issues that we care most about such as increasing state dollars for education, passing the California DREAM Act, and protecting workers regardless of immigration status.
We have a better option and someone who will fully support our right to live with the protections and freedoms that all communities deserve. Help us elect HONOR PAC’s endorsed candidate Dr. Richard Pan to the State Assembly.
NOM has already spent $200,000 to air an attack ad on equality supporter Dr. Pan. And just as you’d suspect, it’s filled with inaccurate claims and lies meant to scare voters.
HONOR PAC encourages you tocontribute to Dr. Pan’s Assembly campaign. Your contribution will tell NOM we won’t let them get away with their lies and deceit again.
Dr. Richard Pan is a pediatrician and educator who builds coalitions and consensus to solve problems facing our communities. He is supported by a large number of Latino and LGBT leaders and organizations, including our friends Speaker of the Assembly John Perez and Equality California.
But he needs our help to spread his winning message and counter NOM’s fear tactics. Please go to Dr. Pan’s website,www.panforassembly.com, and add your name as a supporter by contributing to his campaign TODAY.
Together, we will send a message to NOM and Andy Pugno about our values and what California truly stands for.

LET’S FLEX OUR POLITICAL MUSCLE!
Volunteer at the East L.A. Phone Bank to help elect
pro-LGBT & pro-immigrant rights candidates this November.
With less than a month until the general election, this is the time to volunteer to elect candidates that support our values for equality and justice. Gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown and Kamala Harris, who is running to serve as our next Attorney General, need our help to win in November. We cannot afford having Meg Whitman and Steve Cooley who have already committed to defend Proposition 8 in the courts. Unless you join us to help decide the election, we run the risk of LOSING much of our rights and freedoms.
Equality California has partnered with the LA County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO to call union members to persuade them to vote for pro-equality candidates. The LGBT-themed phone banks are held every Thursday (October 21 & 28) evening from 6:30-9:30pm.
AFL-CIO East Los Angeles Office
5161 Pomona Blvd. Suite 210
Los Angeles, CA 90022
Contact Joseph Arroyo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (213) 864-6790.
Dinner provided before phone bank. No experience necessary. Arrive early for parking and check-in.
