HRC Partners with Univision Arizona to Provide Televised Phone Bank on LGBT Resources

Last week, HRC partnered with Univision Arizona to produce a televised phone bank that provided viewers with information and resources about LGBT issues. Univision reporters covered various LGBT related topics throughout the newscast and volunteers were at the ready to answer questions from call-in viewers.

Topics such as LGBT discrimination, coming out and LGBTQ youth homelessness were discussed on the confidential phone calls. HRC and Univision made sure the right people were there to provide quality information to viewers on LGBT issues. Phone volunteers joined HRC from organizations including One n Ten, ACLU, PFLAG, Competitive Arizona, LUCHA, Phoenix Police and local faith leaders.

The phone bank was broadcast across the entire state and generated dozens of phone calls over the course of the two-hour event. This collaboration between HRC and Univision delivered a message that there are supportive community resources available for LGBT people and their families across Arizona.
