HONOR PAC ELECTS
NEW EXECUTIVE OFFICERS
Javier C. Angulo has extensive political experience advocating for Latino and LGBT rights. He has fundraised for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and managed civic engagement programs at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO). Most recently, he has taken leadership roles in several local and statewide campaigns, including serving as Deputy Political Director for the No on Prop 8 campaign, where he played a vital role in opening the No on 8 East Los Angeles campaign office to expand outreach to Latino voters.
“I am proud to have the confidence and support of the HONOR PAC Board of Directors to lead the PAC,” said Angulo. “Over the past five years, HONOR PAC has played an important role in growing the number of openly gay Latino candidates, and in supporting non-gay Latino allies and Latino-friendly candidates to create a shared movement towards equality and justice for all communities. I look forward to working with my colleagues to continue expanding HONOR PAC and its influence.”

HONOR PAC APPLAUDS ARIZONA RULING TO BLOCK ANTI-IMMIGRANT PROVISIONS
HONOR PAC praises Judge Bolton's decision to block major provisions of Arizona's SB 1070, which took effect today. This ruling ensures that, until a final order is issued by the court, Arizona will be unable to establish its new state immigration scheme that potentially penalizes anyone who does not carry proof of status, including non-citizens who do not carry registration documents, such as those immigrants in transitional status whom the federal government allows to live in the U.S.
HONOR PAC appreciates the hard work of our civil rights champions who have invested both time and resources to combat these hateful race-baiting laws. We call on the community to support these efforts to bring justice and equality to all people living in the United States, and to advocate for a sensible approach to addressing our broken immigration policies.
To learn more about Arizona's SB 1070 or to support the ongoing efforts to combat hate and promote a comprehensive approach to immigration reform, visit www.MALDEF.org.

Latinos and gays face same foe on Nov. 2

Californians take pride in a state that even in hard times embraces an ethic of live and let live. But political campaigns and electoral outcomes often mock and undermine this ideal.
Few groups in California have felt the sting of contradiction more sharply than Latinos and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The statewide election on Nov. 2 is a perfect chance for both populations to send a message that picking on us will be punished.
The passage of SB 1070, Arizona's show-me-your-papers law aimed at rounding up undocumented immigrants, and California's approval of Proposition 8 eliminating marriage rights for same-sex couples have something in common. The conservative Republicans who pushed both measures played on fear and distrust – of Mexican Americans as law-breaking job stealers, of gay people as threats to morality and tradition.
