Human Rights Campaign

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) – a national gay and transgender rights group - is sponsoring an Inclusive Families Conference in Salt Lake City. Organizers say it's meant to counter a World Congress of Families event scheduled in October.

Now that the Supreme Court has issued its rulings for two major gay marriage cases, the Human Rights Campaign is focusing its attention on Utah. The Campaign’s President Chad Griffin was in Salt Lake City Thursday calling for equality in Utah and the other 36 states that do not allow same-sex marriage.

Chad Griffin is brand new on the job as president of the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization.  And his very first stop is Utah.  Griffin says there’s a reason for that.

“It’s a state that does represent some fairly depressing numbers as it relates to how LGBT people are treated, but it’s also a state that represents some real hope,” said Griffin.
