Chad Griffin was appointed President of the Human Rights Campaign in 2012, but by then the political consultant, fundraiser, and former White House staffer had already become an avatar of LGBT equality. In 2009, he co-founded the American Foundation for Equal Rights to organize, publicize, and fund the lawsuit against Proposition 8. “This year we had two of the most historic victories we’ve ever seen in this movement,” say Griffin, without whom the overturning of Prop. 8 in California never would have been possible. “Our job now is to take that momentum and catapult ourselves into our next victories.”
