HRC Mississippi Volunteers Host Engagement Event

Post submitted by Harry Hawkins, HRC Field Organizer Mississippi

As we embark into 2016, HRC Mississippi has dubbed this year as, “The Year of the Volunteer.”

Throughout 2015, we planted many seeds and volunteer networks sprung up throughout the state.  Now in 2016, our teams are planning several events and activities with these communities.

For example, members of the Jackson-area team recently organized the first in a series of quarterly volunteer meet and greets for current and new volunteers.  The events allow seasoned volunteers to share their stories of why serving with HRC Mississippi is important to them and to meet with diverse members of our community.

At this meeting, the volunteers, both old and new, planned new events and activities for the rest of this quarter. These events will build our community and work towards accomplishing full LGBT equality in our state.

As part of Project One America, HRC Mississippi is working to expand LGBT equality in the South. In addition to hosting events and working with schools, families, religious communities and local and state officials, HRC Mississippi is also tracking several pieces of anti-LGBT legislation in the state legislature.

To learn more about the events and how you can get involved in HRC’s work in the Magnolia State, visit hrc.org/Mississippi.
