What’s Happening

The devastation in the Montecito and surrounding areas is heartbreaking. Our thoughts are with all of those dealing with the effects of the storm, including some of our donors & supporters, LGBTQ+ youth, and others in our community who are struggling due to loss and destruction.

Preserving our history

Pacific Pride Foundation has donated our historical archives to the UCSB library! These materials will serve as the cornerstone of the Library’s Special Research Collection LGBTQ+ archive. Do you have archive materials from PPF past events or activities? UCSB is still looking for additional donations - contact Archiving Processing Specialist Zak Liebhaber.

Letter to the HHS & CDC

On December 21st, a letter was sent to HHS Acting Secretary Eric Hargan & CDC Director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald regarding the media reports of restrictions on the use of certain language (including “transgender” and "diversity") in CDC’s FY 2019 budget documents.

Pacific Pride Foundation and dozens of healthcare organizations and other concerned institutions signed the letter emphasizing the ramifications this could have for our country. We are proud to be a part of this large, robust and dignified list to directly encourage appropriate, established and clear language in explaining the important work of CDC’s and HHS's programs.
