Thanksgiving Message from Interim Human Rights Campaign President Joni Madison

by Joni Madison

I just wanted to pause from all of our critical work to simply say, “Thank you.” You make this organization the best it can be. And we can’t thank you enough for sharing your stories that inspire change and for your financial generosity.

The truth is, HRC members are a family — a chosen family. We are stronger together because we all share the same common belief to live in a world where all LGBTQ+ people are treated with dignity and equality.

I’ve been with HRC for many years, through good times and challenging moments for our community, but one thing has never wavered: we continue to make progress every day. We’ve come so far, so fast together and we aren’t stopping or slowing down. When times are hard, remember that.

We’re fighting with you and for you. Your support means the world to us and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to our continued partnership and progress as we work to serve the needs of the community. So stay strong. Stay safe. Stay with us.

And in the meantime, thanks for giving your time and resources and have a very happy Thanksgiving.
