HRC staff and thousands of volunteers will be deployed across the country to lead more than 250 local events in more than 45 states, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. for our Summer of Action pride events. The theme is simple: Unite, resist and enlist against attacks that undermine the LGBTQ community. During the weekend of June 10 and 11, which coincides with the National Equality March in Washington, D.C., and the #ResistMarch in Los Angeles, HRC will hold a Weekend of Action at events coast to coast. However, if you’re unable to attend any of these events in person, here are five things you can do to help spread the word and join the resistance.

HRC is ramping up our historic efforts to resist the Trump administration’s rollback of LGBTQ equality and the consistent onslaught of anti-LGBTQ state legislation across the nation. This year alone, HRC and major state partners have battled more than 130 anti-LGBTQ bills introduced in 30 states. To date, seven of those bills have been signed into law. The Summer of Action will also help lay groundwork for us to go on the offense in key states ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. Your efforts will help us send a clear message to President Trump and lawmakers everywhere that we will not let our basic human rights be trampled on or rolled back.
