We are excited to serve as Co-Chairs of the 35th Annual Human Rights Campaign Columbus Gala. As America’s largest civil rights organization fighting for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) provides a national voice for LGBT issues. This work includes lobbying Congress, mobilizing grassroots action in diverse communities, and increasing public understanding through innovative education and communication strategies.
The 2018 Gala Dinner and Auction will bring together over 800 HRC members, friends, family and allies for an evening of celebration and inspiration. And, importantly, the Gala will raise the funds needed to support this organization’s important mission.
An example of this important work is the HRC Rising initiative. This year, through HRC Rising, HRC is making an especially strong, early push to organize in Ohio against the Trump-Pence agenda and support pro-equality candidates in coming elections.
This is just one of many critical LGBT rights issues that HRC is addressing here at home and throughout the nation. We hope you’ll join us on June 2 to celebrate the progress that’s been made and come together to support HRC’s work.
