Theme Thursday - Human Rights Campaign
Image via WikipediaThe Human Rights Campaign is the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization in America. HRC envisions an America where LGBT people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.
Ever since its founding in HRC has led the way in promoting fairness for LGBT Americans. They have been in existence since 1980 and headquartered in their own permanent new building at 1640 Rhode Island Ave., N.W. Washington, DC, since 2003.
The equal sign logo was unveiled in 1995 as part of a "re-branding." The organization shed it's "funding only" image to a more advocacy mission. The symbol can be seen throughout the world from bumper stickers in Japan to backpacks in Europe. Today the symbol is synonymous to the rainbow symbol and is seen extensively at Pride celebrations.
