There are millions of people whose lives will be better next year – truly, tangibly better – because of what HRC’s members and supporters helped achieve this year. So today, I'm writing to thank you.
This year, more than any year in history, we have seen a true shift in momentum for equality in America.
... State by state, marriage equality is becoming reality.
... Case by case, the bonds of love are triumphing over discrimination and hate.
... Vote by vote we are moving toward true fairness in the workplace.
... Step by step, we are building a nation where all people are secure in their full civil rights.
And it's all because of you. History is not made by bearing witness. It is made by taking action.
You have generously proven your willingness to see this struggle through to the finish – until the day when every young person in this country will grow up knowing true equality, freedom, and dignity.
We know that day will come. We will not rest until it does.
And when you look back, you will know you were on the right side of history.
From all of us at HRC – thank you. May you have a warm and happy Thanksgiving.
