HRC Honors Lance Bass, Magic & Cookie Johnson, Robin McHaelen at Time to Thrive

Last night, HRC kicked off its inaugural conference, Time to Thrive, by honoring Lance Bass, Magic & Cookie Johnson, and Robin McHaelen Executive Director of True Colors Inc with the Upstander Award for their work promoting safety, inclusion and the well-being of LGBTQ youth.

Through the weekend, HRC will engage a broad audience of youth-serving professionals, including K-12 educators, mental health providers, pediatricians, religious leaders, recreational athletic coaches, and youth development staff at places like Boys and Girls Clubs and YMCAs. Time to THRIVE provides a “one-stop-shop” opportunity for these professionals to build awareness and cultural competency, learn current and emerging best practices, and gather resources from leading experts and national organizations in the field.

Stay tuned to #timetoTHRIVE on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for live updates throughout the weekend.

And tomorrow morning, watch LIVE as Chelsea Clinton, Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, delivers special remarks at Time to THRIVE.  Her remarks are scheduled to begin at 11:40 a.m. Pacific Time. You can view the event at http://www.ustream.tv/HumanRightsCampaign.
