THE STORY:

 

Dear friends & family

I don't know about you, but I am scared. I'm terrified to watch all the progress we've made be taken away over the next four years.  This new administration has the power to do some real damage and we need to gather together to support organizations like HRC that are here to fight!

I have volunteered for HRC as the chair of the local San Francisco Bay Area Steering Committee for the past six years.  The majority of work done for HRC is by hundreds of volunteers across the country focused on raising money so that the staff members in Washington DC can drive meaningful change for LGBTQ rights.  But that is not all HRC does.  We have many programs including:

  • Project One America bringing education and understanding to the heart of the South.
  • Welcoming Schools which helps faculty understand how best to support transgender students in their classrooms.
  • Corporate Equality Index which helps ensure America's largest companies are providing benefits and support for their LGBTQ employees. 
  • Want to know more about what other programs your donations to HRC will help fund?  Click here for additional information about our key initiatives!

I don't want my marriage to be nullified.  I don't want the government to roll back the ability for transgender Americans to serve in our military.  I don't want all the Executive Orders that Obama has signed to be undone on January 21st.  We can't just give in because we are exhausted and overwhelmed. 

How can you help???

HRC has launched a membership drive to raise money so we can double-down on the fight for LGBTQ equality.  Now, more than ever, we need you to join and support this fight.  We can't sit back and HOPE everything is OK.  The more members who join HRC, the more power we have as an organization to fight back for equality every step of the way! 

For as little as $5, you too can become a member of the Human Rights Campaign.  In this season of giving, will you please forgo your morning cup of coffee and instead pledge just $5 to help my fundraising efforts?

Thanks so much for your help!
