HRC Responds to Price’s Early Take Off

WASHINGTON, DC — Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, issued the following statement following the resignation of Tom Price as Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services:

“We are glad Tom Price resigned because he jeopardized the health and well being of LGBTQ people and other marginalized communities,” said David Stacy, HRC Director of Government Affairs. “Americans deserve a secretary of Health and Human Services who will stand up for them and look out for their best interest no matter who they are, where they come from or whom they love.”

The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work, and in every community.
