Statement from Joe Solmonese on the departures of Matt Foreman and Kevin Jennings

by HRC Staff

"It has been an honor to work side-by-side with both Matt and Kevin during this oftentimes difficult struggle for equality. Two of our community's national organizations have lost staunch advocates, but it is heartening to hear that both Matt and Kevin are committed to remaining involved as leaders for social justice and fairness for all people.

Matt is someone whose perspective, leadership and insight into our movement have been invaluable. In my three years at HRC, I have come to know Matt and consider him a friend. I look forward to continuing our work together on behalf of the GLBT community.

Kevin's more than twenty years leadership of the organization he founded has made a lasting impact on the lives of thousands of GLBT and straight students. I congratulate him on building a strong and worthy organization whose work will continue."
