Thanks for your support!
January 10, 2017
With the election behind us, it’s clear we’re about to face some of our toughest challenges yet both here in Texas and at the national level. 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 the Texas legislature will convene in Austin. HRC will be on the front lines on both of those places working to fight back against any weakening of the progress we have seen for LGBTQ people at the federal level from the Trump administration.
HRC will also have staff here on the ground in Texas working to help mobilize against the attackes on the LGBTQ community that Dan Patrick and Greg Abbott are promising.
We need you to stand up and be counted like never before. Your donation through this #LoveWillConquerHate campaign of $5 or more will make you a member of HRC (or renew your annual membership another year) so that we can count you among the numbers of constituents that support LGBTQ equality when we are speaking to our elected officials. We need to swell our numbers to the largest they have ever been to fight the attacks ahead so please join and be counted.
And for those who can, now has never been a better time to joint the Federal club at $100/month or more. We need to build the war chest (and I dont use the military metaphor lightly!) to fight back on the attacks we know are coming. Help us get ready.
I really appreciate your support at whatever level is right for you. And if you want to join this campaign and help raise funds yourself - you can easily create your own Crowdrise and join us! Feel free to ask me or any of the other Houston HRC steering committee members for help if you need it.
Together, we will move forward and advance equality — no matter what it takes.
The Human Rights Campaign is America’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) advocacy group — whose mission is to create a world where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.
