The purpose of pride season has always been to join together, celebrate our progress and energize ourselves for the work that still needs to be done to achieve full equality.

And with the Trump Administration actively trying to destroy our progress … take away our rights … silence us … erase us, it’s critically important for LGBTQ Americans and allies to stand up and be visible.

That’s why this pride season will be HRC’s Summer of Action. We are kicking it off during Capital Pride — the day before the Equality March for Unity & Pride — with a 90-minute Summer of Action Grassroots Organizing training on Saturday, June 10. Can you make it?

HRC has a lot planned over Capital Pride weekend –– from turning our headquarters into an Action Center featuring a special art installation, to holding our grassroots activist training, to offering special giveaways, to gathering for the Equality March and remembering the victims and survivors of Pulse.

Whether you make it to HRC, go to the Capital Pride Parade or Festival, or attend the Equality March, we hope you get out there and take action!

Because when we unite, we are strong, we are loud and we cannot be ignored. Together, we can send a powerful message to the White House, Congress and state legislatures that our grassroots army is ready to FIGHT for our rights!

Your participation in your pride this year couldn’t be more important. Please RSVP for HRC’s Grassroots Organizing training. It’s just blocks from the parade route — and we will teach you a heck of a lot about organizing.

Our goal is to empower YOU so that you have all the tools you need to effect real political change in your community. I hope you can make it!
