HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
Maureen McCarty is the Associate Director of Digital Media at the Human Rights Campaign. She operates as editor-in-chief of HRC’s award-winning blog, manages several of its social media platforms, and coordinates its rapid response campaigns.
In 2013, McCarty created HRC’s digital strategy for the groundbreaking “red equal sign” campaign. In just a few short days of the campaign launch, as many as 10 million people used the image on social media--including celebrities, major corporations and leading politicians. The logo was named 2013's "Symbol of the Year" and Facebook declared the campaign the most successful viral effort in the site's history. SXSW, Mashable, PR News, In-House Design and American Advertising have also recognized the “red equal sign” campaign for its worldwide impact.
