HRC Celebrates And Honors The Life's Work of Senator Harry Reid

by Wyatt Ronan

Tonight, the Human Rights Campaign issued the following statement in reaction to the passing of Senator Harry Reid:

The Human Rights Campaign is deeply saddened by the passing of Senator Harry Reid, a champion of LGBTQ+ equality, a leader in the effort to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ a key leader in the passage of the Affordable Care Act, and a staunch advocate of hate crimes legislation. His leadership and courage will long be remembered and his legacy and vision for this country as a more inclusive and just place will persevere. Our thoughts are with his family in this difficult time.

Joni Madison, Human Rights Campaign Interim President
