HRC Celebrates National Volunteer Week
April 11, 2011
Throughout the movement for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality, there has always been a spirit of generosity, and an extraordinary willingness to give time and energy to make this county better for all Americans. Volunteerism has been a driving force for change.
This week we are proud to announce that the Human Rights Campaign will be celebrating National Volunteer Week. We want to take this opportunity to recognize and appreciate all of the phenomenal work of our volunteers in bringing about equality to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. HRC’s committed volunteers work hard to advance equality around the country. They engage diverse groups of people to take action, and develop strong partnerships to advance this critical mission.
As a part of National Volunteer week, we will be featuring the work of some of HRC’s volunteers and we want to hear from you! If you follow HRC on Facebook or Twitter, share why you started volunteering for HRC. Tell us what the best parts are about volunteering for HRC and why others should volunteer in your community.
Ashley Smith, member of HRC’s board of governors responded, “Volunteering is the essence of giving back to our community which we must do in order to make a difference in our fight for equality for all people.”
We look forward to hearing from you and will share some of the stories we hear in posts on HRC Backstory throughout the week.
