Without comprehensive equal rights legislation at the federal level, LGBTQ people are subject to an inconsistent patchwork of legal protections in their states and local communities. This leaves millions of our most marginalized people at risk of potential discrimination at work and in their daily lives.
That’s why The Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBTQ equality alongside lawmakers at the local and state levels across the country. Find out what HRC is doing in Virginia and how you can help secure equal rights for all of its LGBTQ citizens.
After the largest investment in a state legislative election in organization history in 2019, HRC helped elect a pro-equality majority in both chambers; opening the door for long-stalled non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Virginians. We're ready to make more history this year, too.
HRC has communities all over the US, each with initiatives and events based on local priorities for LGBTQ rights and equality. See Virginia’s communities below and discover how you can get involved.
