HRC’s annual Equality Convention is our largest volunteer and board gathering of the year. It features exciting speakers, learning and development opportunities for you as ambassadors of HRC’s work and the opportunity to meet and network with other volunteer leaders from around the country. Best of all - it's FREE!
Participating in the Equality Convention is your best opportunity to learn about HRC’s groundbreaking work to ensure equality everywhere. You will learn, and share, best practices from your colleagues and engage with staff. You will leave DC empowered and educated in your leadership role.
Why should I attend the Equality Convention?
The annual Equality Convention is the only opportunity where all of HRC’s leaders are in the same location sharing best practices. New volunteers have an opportunity to meet and connect with experienced volunteer leaders as well as others who are new to the organization, gaining insight into the functions of their specific training tracks and learning more about the important work being done by HRC teams across the country. In addition to being educational and filled with interaction, the Equality Convention is fun and inspiring, filled with incredible speakers and content that will keep you highly engaged throughout the weekend.
What about Lobby Day?
On Thursday, March 14, join us for our annual Spring Lobby Day and make sure your voice is heard on Capitol Hill. Our morning will begin with a breakfast and training, following which participants will travel to the Hill and meet with their Representatives and Senators to lobby on important LGBTQ rights legislation. No previous lobbying experience is necessary! This year, we have the opportunity to pass the Equality Act -- legislation that would provide comprehensive and explicit non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people -- for the first time in the U.S. House of Representatives but we need your voice on the Hill to make this a reality. As always, we will also be lobbying on other critical issues that impact the LGBTQ community.
