Human Rights Campaign Announces Speakers at 25th Annual Bay Area Gala
Date:7/23/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender civil rights organization, today announced its speakers for its annual Greater Bay Area Gala Dinner on Saturday, July 25, 2009, at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. With the theme of "Power in Progress," speakers will discuss issues impacting the LGBT community's strive for human rights and equality, while celebrating advancements that have been made.

"With opportunities to sign legislation into effect under President Obama's administration including the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act and inclusive Employment Non Discrimination Act, 2009 is a pivotal year to continue to build upon the progress our community has already made," said HRC President Joe Solmonese. "We are honored to feature Congressman Honda and Congressman Nadler at our 25th Annual Gala in San Francisco, both of whom are staunch allies and advocates for our community on Capitol Hill."

On July 16th, 2009, the Senate voted overwhelmingly to add the Matthew Shepard Act to S. 1390, the Senate version of the Department of Defense Authorization bill. The Matthew Shepard Act would give the Justice Department the power to investigate and prosecute bias-motivated violence by providing the department with jurisdiction over crimes of violence where the perpetrator has selected the victim because of the person's actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.

While expressing opposition to four amendments added to the Act this week by the Senate , HRC continues to work with House and Senate champions to work out these amendments and any other differences on hate crimes between the House and the Senate over the next two months.
