1/ Hi everyone - it’s Judy Shepard (@WyoJudyShepard) and Louvon Harris. We are joining @HRC today for a #HRCTwitterTakeover to discuss how Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination potentially threatens hate crimes protections nationwide. #StopKavanaugh
2/ I'm the mother of Matthew Shepard, who was killed because he was gay. In honor of Matthew, our family began the Shepard Foundation, working to erase hate by replacing it with understanding, compassion & acceptance. - @WyoJudyShepard #HRCTwitterTakeover matthewshepard.org Judy Shepard at HRC's Time to THRIVE Conference.

1/ Hi it’s @aijenpoo. I’m the director of @DomesticWorkers, co-director of @CaringAcrossGen and an organizer working for the #FamiliesBelongTogether campaign. I’m doing an #HRCTwitterTakeover to talk about Trump’s “zero tolerance" policy. — @aijenpoo Ai-jen Poo
2/Images displayed across the media don't begin to capture the horror of what’s happening. Recently, hundreds of us spent Father’s Day holding a vigil at a Border Patrol processing center in McAllen, TX, where ~1,000 kids are held at any given time. —@aijenpoo #HRCTwitterTakeover
3/ We chanted “You are not alone,” as buses passed us. It was the most heartbreaking experience of my life. And separations haven't ended. 3,000+ kids have been separated from their families & dispersed across the US with no plan for reunification. — @aijenpoo #HRCTwitterTakeover Ursula Border Processing Center in McAllen, Texas.

Hey Twitter! This is @SaraRamirez, artist and proud Mexican Irish American #immigrant #bisexual #queer #woman. To mark #BiHealthMonth, I’m doing an #HRCTwitterTakeover to talk about the need to address #biphobia and #bi-erasure. #BHAM18 Sara Ramirez takes over the HRC Twitter in honor of Bisexual Health Awareness Month.
Those of us who love more than one sex/gender use many different labels, but we share a common experience: our presence makes people uncomfortable. Our very existence as #bisexual threatens heteronormativity and the gender binary. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover
#Bisexual, #queer, #pansexual, #fluid, non-monosexual folk are the single largest group within the #LGBTQ community, and we come in all Pantone shades, all genders, and no gender. We're trans, cis, nonbinary. We're ✨everywhere ✨. —@SaraRamirez #HRCTwitterTakeover Bisexuals are the single largest group within the LGBTQ community.
