Human Rights Campaign: Build Better, More Inclusive Communities for LGBTQ+ People
By America's Charities on October 11, 2022
The Human Rights Campaign Foundation (HRC) is fighting for a world where lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people are truly equal — from the boardroom to the homeroom, from the corner store to the emergency room, and in every single community we call home.
To make this world a reality, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation engages with people across almost every aspect of everyday life. We work with educators, parents, people of faith, LGBTQ+ youth, corporate leaders, and global innovators to educate, to empower, and to make connections that will help build a better future for all.
There’s no one with a greater stake in that future than our young people, which is why we’re working to make sure that LGBTQ+ youth and their peers have the support they need to truly thrive. Through innovative training and consultation with schools, child welfare agencies, and others, HRC’s All Children - All Families program creates welcoming and affirming environments for LGBTQ+ prospective parents, LGBTQ-led families, and LGBTQ+ youth.
As we strive to build a better future, we’re also working with corporations that are driving much-needed progress right now. Leading American businesses know that protecting employees from discrimination isn’t just the right thing to do — it’s also good for business. Our Corporate Equality Index (CEI) is helping national and international corporations reach for benchmarks for inclusion and build workplaces where every person knows they are truly welcome.
These corporate best practices propelled by the CEI are moving equality forward — not just in the United States, but around the world. In addition to our corporate partnerships, our HRC Global Program works with advocates on the ground who are engaging in life-saving work to ensure they have the tools and resources they need. We’re also shining a bright light on dangerous injustices facing our international community.
We do all this — and more. Our work is not done until every LGBTQ+ person is truly equal. And that’s why we need your help. Support from donors through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC #11893) and workplace giving campaigns helps us keep moving our community forward.
