Together, we ensure the future of the LGBTQ+ movement.
Your investment in HRC ensures the future of the LGBTQ+ movement.
In any social movement, achieving legislative victories is only one way to measure success. Changing people’s lives matters just as much. For over 40 years, HRC has worked to achieve equality for LGBTQ+ people while encouraging them to live their lives openly — even as we seek to change the hearts and minds of all people to the side of equality.
Our work is national in scale, but personal in impact — felt when LGBTQ+ people visit a sick partner or child in a hospital … go to their jobs without fear of being fired … are welcomed in their faith community … walk through school hallways confident that harassment will not be tolerated.
Much has changed since our founding in 1980. You have been an important part of the HRC story. Despite recent historic gains, there remains difficult work ahead to achieve full equality. A gift for HRC in your will or trust or by beneficiary designation can help ensure that we take the same conviction and determination that brought us to this moment and keep moving forward for LGBTQ+ people and their families.
