HONOR Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the rights and freedoms of the Latino LGBT community through leadership development, advocacy and public education. The HONOR Fund name is rooted in its founding organization HONOR PAC (Political Action Committee); HONOR means “pride” in both English and Spanish and speaks to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community’s intrinsic dignity of self, family and community.
HONOR Fund envisions a world where Latina/o LGBT communities fully realize their human potential and actively and substantively engage in a civil society enriched with dignity, equality and free of discrimination. We build on our communities’ strengths of culture, language, passion and soul, and cultivate vibrant social networks as vehicles to personal development, professional advancement, and cultural richness. Our approach to empower is threefold, focusing on increasing awareness and acceptance of Latina/o LGBT issues through policy and leadership advocacy, community education programs, and community empowerment and leadership programs.
