Corporate America is leading the way toward equitable and fairer treatment of LGBTQ families and citizens, discovering that it’s simply good for their employees and for their business.  At the same time, politically motivated and extremist, mean-spirited attacks on LGBTQ families and individuals have never been more rampant than in the current environment, nationally and in many states including North Carolina and South Carolina.  The Human Rights Campaign is the largest organization in America, with more than 3 million members and supporters nationally, and over 80,000 in North Carolina, who are dedicated to fighting for the fair and equal civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer citizens.

The 24th annual HRC North Carolina Gala will be the largest LGBTQ community fundraising event in the state, and one of the largest for HRC in the country.
