Arizona’s ‘In God We Trust’ License Plates Found To Fund Anti-LGBTQ Group

Sales of Arizona's specialty "In God We Trust" license plate have quietly supported the Alliance Defending Freedom organizatiAn Arizona state senator is working to increase regulations on specialty license plates after the state’s “In God We Trust” plate was found to benefit an anti-LGBTQ organization that’s been deemed a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

State Sen. Juan Mendez (D) revealed that proceeds from sales of the specialty license plate support the Alliance Defending Freedom organization, a group known for supporting an evangelical baker who refused to bake a cake for a gay couple. The group also recently made news for representing a Christian charity that refused to allow a homeless transgender woman at its overnight shelter.

The Arizona Department of Transportation’s (ADOT) website does not mention that ADF is the beneficiary of the $25 plates. It states that “$17 goes to promote the national motto ‘In God We Trust.’”

Mendez, in two bills introduced last week, proposed not only eliminating the plate but requiring a public database that identifies all of the organizations that are financially supported by these specialty plates’ sales.

“Hopefully in the future we can put in place some commonsense guidelines that would bar hate groups from earning money through Arizona license plates,” Mendez said in a press release sent to The Arizona Republic. “State dollars should not be funding an organization that works to strip residents of our state of their human rights and human dignity. It’s appalling that we’ve already sent over a million dollars to this extremist hate group.”
