ATLANTA – Saturday night, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) civil rights organization, hosted its Atlanta Dinner. The event featured a speech from Stacey Abrams, whom HRC endorsed for Governor of Georgia last month. Stacey Abrams is a proven leader and an inspirational figure whose voting rights organization partnered with HRC in the 2020 election to protect the rights of LGBTQ+ voters nationwide. Abrams has been a strong ally to the LGBTQ+ community, as she fought against regressive, anti-equality legislation during her time in the Georgia House of Representatives and supported policies like nondiscrimination protections for LGBTQ+ Georgians and marriage equality.
The evening also included remarks from the Mayor of Atlanta Andre Dickens, who has been a staunch LGBTQ+ advocate in his position.
