The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. HRC represents a force of more than one million members and supporters nationwide—all committed to making HRC’s vision a reality. Founded in 1980, HRC advocates on behalf of LGBT Americans, mobilizes grassroots actions in diverse communities, invests strategically to elect fair-minded individuals to office and educates the public about LGBT issues.
With support from our Foundation, the Morningstar Foundation, philanthropist Stuart Kurlander and an anonymous donor, HRC launched the Jewish Organization Equality Index, an innovative, first-of-its-kind effort to analyze and rate U.S. Jewish non-profits on their policies, practices and programs as they are pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and members. The 18-month collaboration between the HRC Foundation and Jewish community organizations will include a survey to benchmark current practices, educational resources for improvement and a final report to highlight the advances made and the work still to be done. HRC’s fair and achievable standards for inclusion are supported with informative resources, webinars, cutting-edge research and tools to help organizations along the way.
