Today longtime HRC supporter and Academy Award-winning actress Sally Field will receive her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Field, whose career has spanned nearly 50 years, is the 2,524th individual to receive a star on the Walk.
Last year, Field received the HRC Ally for Equality Award at the 16th Annual National Dinner. During her acceptance speech, Field spoke of her longtime, unwavering support for her son, Samuel Greisman, who publically came out at the dinner.
Field is one of many prominent Americans that have helped to advance the movement as a straight ally. Today we proudly celebrate her achievement and thank her for her continued support.
Send your congratulations to Sally Field now.
