THE STORY:

With the election behind us, it’s clear we’re about to face some of our toughest challenges yet.  
 

LGBTQ people have experienced devastating setbacks and struggles from our earliest days. We know what it’s like to be the target of zealots and extremists -- even to fear for our own safety. Throughout our history, despite the challenge, we have mobilized, organized and always fought back. That’s where you come in.


Will you help grow our grassroots army fighting for equality by setting up your own fundraiser as part of our Love Will Conquer Hate campaign? It’s simple—just click on the “Fundraise For This Campaign” button above, and ask your friends and family to make a gift before Inauguration Day.


We need you in this fight, today more than ever before. Take your concern and turn it into action. Help us tell the world that Love Will Conquer Hate.


In a few short weeks Donald Trump will assume office as President of the United States — and we need you to stand with us now more than ever before. 

 

Every donation of $5+ that you recruit from your friends and family helps strengthen our grassroots army and raises critical funds before Donald Trump and Mike Pence take office.

Everything we have fought for, and everything we have accomplished is on the line. But together, we can protect our progress — and we can continue to make our world a safer, more inclusive place for LGBTQ people.

As you likely know, I am honored to serve as the National Co-Chair of the Board of Governors for HRC. In my role, I work to do everything I can every day in the fight for equality both locally and nationally and I am in my 8th year serving on our tremendous Board. But, now more than ever, I am fired up to face the challenges ahead over the next 4 years. BUT I NEED YOUR HELP! YOUR TIME! YOUR TALENT! YOUR TREASURE! 

So, I ask you to give what you can and support HRC as we build up the forces and the funds needed for the fight ahead! 

Together, we will move forward and advance equality — no matter what it takes.

Thank you, in advance, for your support and do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions! 

Best, 

Michael
