Chad Griffin Tops Human Rights Campaign

By Charlotte Robinson, March 02, 2012
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) the leading LGBT political organization has announced that Chad Griffin, Founding Board Member of the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), will become the next president of HRC. This is great news. I was on a conference call with Chad 2 hours after Prop 8 was found unconstitutional in California by the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit last month & he seems like a really compassionate, dedicated person that we could use in Washington to speed up equality for our LGBT people. “I cannot think of anyone better to take the helm of the Human Rights Campaign than my dear friend & colleague Chad Griffin,” said AFER lead co-counsel Theodore B. Olson. “There is no one more passionate, more resourceful or more effective than Chad. His brilliant & visionary leadership makes me confident that one day, very soon, every American will be treated equally under the law. HRC is extraordinarily lucky to have him.” “The federal constitutional challenge to Proposition 8, Perry v. Brown, would never have happened without the vision & tenacity of my dear friend Chad Griffin,” said AFER Founding Board Member Rob Reiner. “His incomparable leadership has brought us one step closer toward completing America’s last great civil rights struggle. My congratulations go out to Chad on this great honor & to the Human Rights Campaign for picking a brilliant leader as its next president.” Updates to Come…:)
