As we grow ever closer to realizing the dream of equality here in the United States, there are millions more LGBT people around the world who live in fear and isolation – and under the rule of governments that criminalize their very identities. The Global Engagement Program works to leverage HRC’s domestic LGBT work and passionate membership base to be a strong partner in the global equality movement. By calling out Americans for exporting hate, creating awareness of international LGBT issues, and collaborating with dedicated advocates across the globe, HRC is working towards a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
HRC is a founding member of the Council for Global Equality and is a proud member of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA).
Join the Global Engagement Program as we commemorate the United Nation’s Human Rights Day and our collective mission to build a world of equality for all. Human Rights Day is celebrated annually on December 10 and is the date in which the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the first global proclamation to set a standard set of rights for all peoples around the globe.
