Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton will address the staff, board and volunteer leaders of the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBT advocacy organization, on October 3rd.
Calling Clinton a “visionary leader,” HRC President Chad Griffin said in a statement announcing the address that the former secretary of state “is a tremendous advocate for equality and has been a tireless champion for the advancement of LGBT rights as human rights around the globe.”
Griffin said that Clinton will be joining the group at its fall board meeting “to discuss the challenges ahead in the fight for full federal equality” for LGBT people. Clinton’s address will come the morning of its national dinner.
The group is yet to endorse a presidential candidate.
Griffin has a long association with the Clinton’s having begun his political career working on the 1992 presidential campaign of Bill Clinton.
