Athletes for Equality
As the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, the Human Rights Campaign represents a force of more than 1.5 million members and supporters nationwide — all committed to making HRC's vision a reality.
Founded in 1980, HRC advocates on behalf of LGBT Americans, mobilizes grassroots actions in diverse communities, invests strategically to elect fair-minded individuals to office and educates the public about LGBT issues.
HRC’s Athletes for Equality are committed to taking a personal stance in the name of equality. Whether LGBT or straight allies, our Athletes share our beliefs about the injustices LGBT Americans face and possess a willingness to push themselves physically to bring forth change.
Our Athletes take on their own challenge each time they sign up. Through their commitment to an endurance event, either on one of our Teams or in an event of their choosing, they not only train their bodies to be stronger and faster but they commit to raise critical funds for our work. Each and every day they spread a message of fairness as Americans for LGBT equality.
