HRC's #LoveYourNeighbor campaign is a video storytelling project focused on sharing the experiences of LGBTQ people and allies across the South, particularly in Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi where HRC has permanent campaigns as part of its Project One America campaign. The #LoveYourNeighbor project is partially funded by a grant from Toyota, which has a manufacturing plant in Blue Springs, Mississippi, just outside of Tupelo. This work would not be possible without the generosity and support of Toyota and the Levi Strauss & Co.
Through HRC's work in the South and the #LoveYourNeighbor campaign, HRC hopes the powerful accounts will be shared with a broad audience and change the hearts and minds of many to create spaces of community, safety, and inclusivity.
