HRC Can Not Be Trusted Until It Answers For Alphonso David Firing

I wish I could say that I was surprised by the Human Rights Campaign’s decision to fire its first Black president, Alphonso David.

But I was not. After the release of a dossier digging into sexual harassment allegations against former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo that seemed to implicate David, HRC became headline news and David, the center of scrutiny.

As a result, the boards of HRC and its Foundation launched a probe into the matter and then several weeks later terminated David “with cause.” But, given the organization’s long history of overlooking and erasing LGBTQ+ people of color, if HRC hopes to truly nurture stronger relationships with these communities, they need to be more transparent about David’s discharge.
