The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Americans. By inspiring and engaging individuals and communities, the Human Rights Campaign strives to end discrimination against LGBTQ people and realize a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
HRC envisions a world where every member of the LGBTQ family has the freedom to live their truth without fear, and with equality under the law. HRC empowers its 3 million members and supporters to mobilize against attacks on the most marginalized people in its community. HRC works to ensure that all LGBTQ people, and particularly trans, people of color and HIV+, are treated as full and equal citizens within the movement, across the country and around the world.
