  • Represent HRC in strategic partnerships with allied organizations in the region (LGBTQ organizations as well as other progressive allies) in order to collaborate and advance the goals of HRC and the LGBTQ movement.

 

  • Share HRC’s commitment to inclusion and the intersectionality of our movement by integrating campaign and outreach efforts to defend and advance shared advocacy priorities like reproductive rights, immigrant rights, workers’ rights and other civil rights causes.

 

  • Serve as the face of HRC in the region and represent HRC at local events.

 

  • Other duties as assigned.
