WASHINGTON, DC— Jody M. Huckaby, Executive Director of PFLAG National (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays)—the nation's original ally organization, and the largest grassroots-based non-profit for families, friends, and allies of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people—has issued the following statement regarding the hiring of Chad Griffin as HRC’s new President:

“On behalf of the members of PFLAG—parents, families, friends, straight allies, and LGBT people—I want to congratulate the Board of Directors and Chad Griffin on his appointment to lead HRC.  Chad has demonstrated, through his leadership at the American Foundation for Equal Rights, his commitment to the importance of diversity in pursuit of equality for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender loved ones, an issue which is neither partisan nor exclusive.  We look forward to working with Chad in his new capacity as President of HRC.”
