About HRC

As the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, the Human Rights Campaign represents a force of more than 1.5 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.


The Human Rights Campaign is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

How Is HRC Working on HIV/AIDS?

  • HRC continues to push Congress to provide the strongest possible federal response to the epidemic through fully-funded prevention, treatment and research programs. HRC fights policies based on ideology, not science, including the funding of abstinence-only education and bans on federal dollars for syringe exchange programs.
  • HRC lobbies Congress to provide funding for science-based, comprehensive sex education, which provides all youth the tools they need to live healthy lives and reduces new HIV infections.
  • HRC is pushing HHS to undertake the research necessary to revise current blood donation policy and permit willing, low-risk gay and bisexual men to donate.
  • HRC is also working with HHS to ensure that the Affordable Care Act is implemented in the most inclusive way possible for LGBT people, including those living with HIV.
  • HRC develops and coordinates regular, frequent communications to educate the public about HIV prevention, treatment, and stigma.
