If you’re reading this email and you have not purchased your Spring Luncheon tickets, please do it now!
Our first 2018 luncheon is this Saturday, April 14 th , at the Tower Club in downtown Dallas. The luncheon features HRC guest speaker, Geoff J Wetrosky, Campaign Director of HRC Rising. HRC Rising is a new campaign to accelerate progress in states from coast- to-coast, resist the politics of hate, fight anti-LGBTQ legislation, and fuel pro-equality candidates and initiatives. Also, this year the Black Tie Dinner Board of Directors selected eighteen North Texas beneficiaries plus one National beneficiary, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, to receive proceeds from this year's dinner. We will have Black Tie Dinner Car Raffle tickets for sale at the luncheon. You could be the proud owner of either a brand new 2019 Mercedes-Benz C300 or GLC300, underwritten by Park Place Motorcars. Let’s show our support for an amazing cause. RSVP and get your tickets for the luncheon now. We look forward to seeing you there.
Our April Mixer is on a THURSDAY!
Don’t forget to mark your calendar. On Thursday, April 19, we are gathering at Ross & Hall Beer Garten+Kitchen near Bryan Place for a Thursday Happy Hour. This is just one of a few changes you will see in the coming months as we respond to your feedback regarding our local events. Stop by and say hello. We would love to see you there.
Runnoffs May 22nd
We need another record turnout for the primary run-offs. There is still time to register if you have not done so already. Here are some critical dates:
Last Day to Register to Vote Monday, April 23, 2018
First Day of Early Voting Monday, May 14, 2018
Last Day to Apply by Mail Friday, May 11, 2018

We still have a lot of work to do to help those facing runoffs in May and elections in the Fall. Please make time to volunteer to canvass, block walk, and/or phone bank for these worthy candidates. Monetary donations of any amount are also vital to all three campaigns!
Fiscal 2019 Planning Retreat
This past weekend, your DFW Steering Committee leaders and volunteers attended our Fiscal 2019 Planning retreat. Kipp Colvin, Sr. Manager, Communities & Volunteer Relations from HRC National facilitated and led the retreat. Friday evening we met to discuss our goals, obstacles and challenges and Saturday we met to discuss our action plan. Thank you to Wilson Interiors for providing their new office space for our event. They were amazing hosts and also provided bagels, coffee and snacks throughout the day. If you have time to volunteer for an upcoming event, either planning an event or volunteering the day of, we would love to hear from you.
