The Human Rights Campaign, a nonpartisan organization working at both the federal and state levels, represents a grassroots army of 3 million members and supporters nationwide. As the country’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, HRC envisions an America where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic civil rights and can be open, honest, and safe at home, at work, and in the community. HRC effectively lobbies Congress, mobilizes grassroots action in diverse communities, invests strategically to elect fair-minded officials, and increases public understanding through innovative education and communications strategies.
HRC endeavors, as part of its mission, to create a safe and secure workplace for LGBTQ employees. The HRC Corporate Equality Index (CEI) sets the standards for corporate excellence in ensuring LGBTQ equality, and HRC provides the resources for companies to achieve this goal.
Because of your support, Americans in every state can now say we live in a nation that embraces marriage equality. However, despite that historic stride, in a majority of states millions of LGBTQ Americans are still at risk of being fired from their jobs, evicted from their homes, or denied services simply because of who they are. To combat this threat, HRC is hard at work both nationally and locally to both defeat legislation targeting our community and pass comprehensive non-discrimination protections. HRC is leading the charge in Congress for the Equality Act, which would ensure LGBTQ people the same rights in basic areas of life such as employment, housing, education, federal funding, and more, no matter where they live. With your unwavering support and leadership, we will continue to fight until the dream of full federal equality is a reality for all Americans.
