National Dinner

Saturday, October 29, 2022 at
Walter E Washington Convention Center
Washington, DC

Organized by HRC Greater Washington DC

We are happy to be producing the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner again – it will be wonderful to see everyone in person – it has been too long! And the timing couldn’t be more urgent.

The HRC National Dinner has always been a marquee event and a vital fundraiser for our work. It strongly demonstrates the groundswell in passion and dedication to the rights of all LGBTQ+ people. While it will be a celebratory and joyous occasion, the hard reality is our community is under vicious and relentless attacks. And being together at this time will be essential to show we will not back down.

We look forward to sharing an evening of storytelling and inspiration with you.

5:00 PM – Welcome Reception
7:00 PM – Dinner & Stage Program

Walter E. Washington Convention Center
801 Mt Vernon Pl NW, Washington, DC 20001

Policy on Covid-19 Vaccine Requirements to attend in-person indoor events produced by the Human Rights Campaign:

The Human Rights Campaign and Human Rights Campaign Foundation require all guests attending in-person indoor events produced by the organization to be fully vaccinated in order to attend. The CDC defines fully vaccinated as:

● 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or

● 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

Proof of full vaccination, by showing a vaccine card, clear photo of the card or vaccine passport app will be accepted, and will be required for entrance to any HRC event, along with a picture ID. Those who are not fully vaccinated will not be admitted to HRC events.

Additionally, HRC encourages attendees to wear masks when not eating or drinking or when six feet of social distance cannot be maintained.

As the Covid-19 public health emergency is an ever-evolving situation, HRC reserves the right to add, adjust and institute further attendance requirements as deemed necessary right up until the event begins. HRC will communicate any material changes to our policy, as we continue to monitor the CDC, state and local guidelines.

By attending the event, you acknowledge that HRC expects all participants at HRC events to comply with CDC, state and local COVID-related guidelines, rules and requirements, which continue to evolve, that you are attending at your own risk and that you release HRC, its officers, directors, agents, employees and assigns from any liability related to COVID-19 which might occur as a result of your attenda

If you have questions regarding this, please contact ahead of the event.
