Volunteer at HRC. It’s your community. The time is now.

Volunteering with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) empowers you to be an important part in creating the change we envision for our country. HRC’s volunteer-led events and activities are about engaging lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people and our allies, educating the public and raising funds necessary to support the important work of HRC locally and nationally. Join a vibrant, energetic group of leaders in your community.

Be a part of the change, be engaged, get involved! Sign up to volunteer by emailing our volunteer coordinator Samantha Murphy with your name and availability to samrosemurphy94@gmail.com.

  • Educate the public about critical issues and help to change heart and minds

Examples of Volunteer Opportunities

There are multiple opportunities every year to volunteer your time for HRC Cleveland and the Annual Gala!

Be a critical part of our efforts around electing HRC endorsed candidates to public office, working on critical ballot measures and major legislative advocacy efforts around issues like marriage equality.

Gala Dinner and Community Events Fundraising
Hard work and countless hours go into our gala dinner and community event (e.g. bowling, golf, comedy nights, etc.) fundraisers. And, an equal amount of satisfaction, fun and excitement result from them. Get the opportunity to meet other great, dedicated volunteers while helping to make these amazing events a reality. Donate your time & talents in any of the following areas: Silent Auction, Graphic Design, Corporate Sponsorships, Table/Ticket Sales, Advertising, the Program Book and more!

The HRC Cleveland Gala + Auction is a rewarding experience to be a part of; it showcases the impact HRC has on the community and our engaged volunteers walk away feeling not only proud and accomplished, but also with new or further developed leadership skills which are transferable to the workplace.

Pride and Other Membership Recruitment Activities
We educate people on various issues, sign up members, encourage activists to join HRC’s Online Action Center at Pride and other membership recruitment activities. We need your help to connect with attendees at Pride and other membership recruitment activities.

(Diversity, Religious Communities, Families & Youth, Transgender, Partnership Building)
Engaging millions of Americans in supporting equality for LGBTQ people is essential to achieving HRC’s vision. Join HRC in your community in reaching millions through our outreach efforts.

In-District Lobby Visits
Did you know that every citizen has the right to seek a meeting or a lobby visit with his or her members of Congress? In-district, or local, lobbying visits are key to advancing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer equality. Why? Because issues need advocates! Help the community by attending or organizing an in-district lobby.
