Changing the Course of History: Best of 2012


Leading Through Innovation

HRC has continued to push the envelope with its online outreach efforts. Special projects like Share Your Love, The Truth About Romney and the Election Center built on initial successes we saw after the launch of our redesigned website a year ago. Our new technology allows us to better engage and interact with our members and supporters.

  • This year HRC launched its Marriage Center online. The interactive map features statistics, news and updates on marriage recognition, relationship recognition, interstate marriage recognition and marriage prohibition state-by-state.
  • HRC’s Call4Equality tool connected supporters with friends and family in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, where voters weighed in on marriage ballot initiatives.
  • Tens of thousands of site visitors seeking ways to take action ahead of the 2012 election found their way to HRC’s Election Center. The site helped visitors register to vote, motivate friends and family to vote for equality, support pro-equality candidates and more.
