HRC Houston Volunteers


Thank you for your interest in HRC volunteering! Here we share the different program areas HRC Houston volunteers. Only with the support of great volunteers can we be successful. 


Volunteers can commit to different levels of engagement. We have hundreds of people who join us as a "day-of" volunteer, helping where they can with social and political events. Other volunteers commit to monthly meetings serving on a sub-committee and influence the various events and work we do. Volunteers who want to lead the organization join the local Houston steering committee and chair/co-chair an area of programming for HRC Houston. Please start today where it makes sense. Try by volunteering or attending a single event, connect with us, and do more when you can. All of us together make HRC what it is today.

Volunteers help support HRC endorsed local, state, and federal candidates by attending and organizing rally’s, fundraisers, phone banking or block walking events. 


Membership Outreach

Volunteers help recruit new members to join HRC through events in the community such as Pride, festivals, music events, and athletic events. Volunteers share the story of HRC by sharing their personal stories, sharing the mission of HRC, and selling popular items such as shirts, bags, and sun glasses.
