"HRC, your time is near ; fake inclusion won't work here."
Activists from the Queer/LGBTIQA2Z Occupy Wall Street, a caucus of activists affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street movement, protested outside a fancy and expensive gala "corporate event" sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign.
Activists accuse HRC of refusing to work for the benefit of the LGBT community, which HRC purports to represent. HRC also refuses to create a transparent process, activists allege, which would include participation and "inclusion" of grassroots groups in the LGBT equality movement
Nobody knows how much money HRC wasted to pay for the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel corporate function. Indeed, if it continues to use member donations to pay for corporate functions like this, some activists said that HRC will be forced to dissolve like some past social movement groups, which fizzle out.
