Fighting for our people.

Together, we defeated President Trump, shifted the landscape for LGBTQ+ employees in the U.S. and around the globe, and made it safer for LGBTQ+ people to be out, proud and visible in schools, workplaces and communities. But the fight is far from over. From mobilizing 62+ million Equality Voters to turning the tide on anti-LGBTQ+ hate, we're focused on fighting for the liberation of all our people -- without exception and without leaving anybody behind.

How we’re making change today

HRC’s campaigns are focused on mobilizing those who envision a world strengthened by diversity, where our laws and society treat all people equally, including LGBTQ+ people and those who are multiply marginalized.

  • National State of Emergency for LGBTQ+ Americans

    We have officially declared a state of emergency for LGBTQ+ people in the United States for the first time following an unprecedented and dangerous spike in anti-LGBTQ+ legislative assaults sweeping state houses this year.

  • Count Me In

    Transgender and non-binary people are your neighbors, co-workers, family members and friends. And when you or your friends and family are the targets of hate, violence and discrimination, you act.

  • Count Us In

    The LGBTQ+ community faces unprecedented political attacks and a surge in anti-LGBTQ+ hate crimes and violence. Extremists are targeting business allies, testing their values of diversity, equity and inclusion.

  • In Attendance

    LGBTQ+ students of all ages deserve to be in attendance as their most authentic selves as they return to their individual learning environments. Our “In Attendance'' campaign is designed to empower LGBTQ+ students to do just that.

    We’ve got the resources. We’ve got the tools.

    This school year, the Human Rights Campaign and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation–along with a supportive network of parents, educators and allies– are helping LGBTQ+ students everywhere proudly declare themselves ‘in attendance’ in their classroom settings. Amidst a national declaration of emergency due to an infuriating onslaught of discriminatory legislation, much of which directly targets LGBTQ+ youth, and efforts from extremist politicians attempting to erase and silence our voice and history, we are championing the academic success and overall well-being of LGBTQ+ students in the country.


In addition to campaigns, the HRC Foundation supports LGBTQ+ individuals, allies, and institutions with resources via a set of comprehensive programs.
