Today’s equality battle for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in America is one that has captured the attention of media – and society in general – especially in recent months. In anticipation of the Supreme Court of the United States’ ruling on Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) – the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBT Americans – is working to communicate and influence both legal and social change.

Join Fred Sainz, VP of Communications and Marketing for the HRC and 2008 PRSA PR Professional of the Year, as he explains the importance of communications and media relations as pivotal decisions draw nigh and the movement for LGBT equality continues. Attendees will:

 

  • Learn how the roles of communications, marketing and media relations play in HRC’s work (LGBT federal advocacy and the HRC Foundation) and the issues that HRC leads for the LGBT community;
  • Discover the evolution of HRC’s communications and marketing team’s role within HRC and how it’s pivotal to the organizations success; and
  • Understand how HRC’s communications and marketing team works in local markets to provide important communication and marketing support for local HRC Steering Committees and on local LGBT issues.
