The HRC Family is mourning the loss of our beloved colleague and friend, Cassidy Karakorn. Over her 17-year career at the Human Rights Campaign, Cassidy tirelessly championed civil rights for the LGBTQ community. As Director of Consumer Marketing, Cassidy Karakorn's eye for fashion and art made a transformative impact on HRC and helped us reach more people than ever before. We loved her and loved working with her. Our hearts go out to Cassidy’s family and many friends who are grieving her loss. In every future effort, we will seek to make Cassidy proud, and will carry her memory with us always.
Last week, San Francisco HRC Steering Committee member Jerry Mai was invited to talk about HRC at Campbell United Church of Christ. “Speaking at the Campbell United Church of Christ really reminded me of the support I received when I came out and was rejected by my family," Mai said. "Everyone was so supportive and shocked about the issues that our LGBTQ community faces across the United States. It's all about educating and informing those around us. People care. They just have to know the plan of action."
