All You Need is Love

I was impressed when I opened my email this morning and read HRC's new slogan for donations, "Love Conquers Hate" ( http://www.hrc.org ) in a plea to support Hate Crimes legislation.
 
HRC is "leading the fight against hate violence" and I'm sure that by not mentioning their support for only explicitly inclusive legislation to ensure that transgender people will be covered was simply an oversight.
 
After HRC pledged their support to GenderPac, the largest and oldest representative of the transgender community and the many hours that must have gone into GenderPac's statistics report (50under30 pdf) I just know it was an oversight by HRC to not mention explicit inclusion, it would have to be.


After all is said and done, HRC is not the organization that I thought it was. It is so much more.

 
Sincerely,
