Mike Pence On The Issues

Pence In The Press

Will Pence Condemn “Kill Transgenders” Chanting Alleghany Activists?

Our community is facing an epidemic of violence and these detestable and despicable chants inciting murder must be condemned. While the “Back the Blue” rally was not a Trump sanctioned event, the protestors are clearly Trump supporters based on their clothing and signage and they must be denounced by Pence and the Trump campaign. Trump and Pence have consistently refused to acknowledge the epidemic of anti-LGBTQ+ violence and failed to commit any federal resources to combat this epidemic of violence. Will they finally step up and condemn their supporters' actions?

Trump & Pence Ignoring Disproportionate Impacts Of COVID-19

The federal government is failing to address or even acknowledge the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on people of color and the LGBTQ+ community. Instead, they have limited access to health care by refusing to reopen the ACA exchanges and spouted untruth after untruth about the crisis. Trump, Pence and our entire federal government are failing us.

HRC to Trump and Pence: Stop Attacking LGBTQ+ Youth and Families

Trump and Pence relentlessly marginalize LGBTQ+ people and attempt to erase our existence. Their disturbing worldview extends into the adoption and foster care systems, where they support giving federally-funded foster and adoption agencies a license to discriminate against LGBTQ+ children and prospective parents, religious minorities and other vulnerable groups. LGBTQ+ youth are tragically overrepresented in foster care, and this White House continues to exacerbate the marginalization, harassment and discrimination that LGBTQ+ youth in foster care and families face.
