Happy Thanksgiving!

We are especially thankful for each of you!

Well, the holidays are here.  For both of us, Thanksgiving has always been very special. Getting together with family and friends for great food, good times and maybe to raise a glass or two. It is an occasion to reflect on the many things for which we are thankful.

This week it seems especially appropriate to offer thanks from both of us to every one of you.  While we work hard every day -- often harder at HRC than at our real jobs, we only do it because all of our Federal Club members make the work of the Human Rights Campaign possible.  And the progress that we are making together is nothing short of astounding!

Every time a company adds benefits for LGBT employees equal to those of straight employees; every time we win another case for marriage equality; every time an LGBT teenager realizes that they are not alone and can be proud of who they are; every time a city bans discrimination against LGBT people – it is because of you! Your dollars and commitment make all of this possible. And that is something to be very thankful for!

So, we hope you enjoy your turkey or whatever your favorite holiday fare is. If you’re a Cowboys fan, enjoy the game. We hope you can also take some time to rest and reflect. And, whatever you are thankful for this week, we wish you a great holiday!! Be safe, and we will see you at the holiday party!
