HRC Recognized as a Top “Must-Follow Non-Profit” in Fourth Annual Mashable Awards

 

The following comes from HRC Online Content Manager Dan Rafter:

HRC was recognized as one of the Top Five “Must-Follow Non-Profits” at the Fourth Annual Mashable Awards, which highlight the best of online social innovation. Congratulations to To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA), which took home the top honor in the category. TWLOHA is a non-profit dedicated to helping those struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.

Thank you to all who participated and voted for HRC! We recognize the power of social innovation to affect the change needed to advance equality. To that end, HRC dramatically expanded its online presence in 2010, with more than 670,000 fans on Facebook and 27,000 followers on Twitter.

HRC is on the forefront of innovation in advancing awareness on issues of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality across multiple platforms. Some of our highlights in 2010 included mobilizing for the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,”; demonstrating broad support for equality through a National Coming Out Day application; and engaging web users in a photo mosaic aimed at raising HIV/AIDS awareness on World AIDS Day.

Thank you again for your votes and, more importantly, your continued commitment to advancing equality. We look forward to building on the great work of 2010 in the New Year.
