Anne Hathaway to Be Honored at Human Rights Campaign National Dinner

The Human Rights Campaign will honor Anne Hathaway with the HRC National Equality Award at the 22nd annual HRC National Dinner on Saturday, Sept. 15.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will speak at the event, as well as former Attorney General Eric Holder, Virginia Delegate Danica Roem, and Nevada Secretary of State candidate Nelson Araujo. Earlier in the day, Stacey Abrams, the Democratic nominee for governor of Georgia, will address HRC members.

Most recently seen in “Ocean’s Eight,” Hathaway has won Academy, Golden Globe, SAG, and BAFTA awards for her starring role in 2012’s “Les Miserables.” She has also starred in theater productions, and won the Clarence Derwent Award for her turn in the play “Carnival.”

In 2012, Hathaway and her husband sold their wedding photos and donated proceeds to organizations working to achieve marriage equality. She also joined an HRC-led petition in 2016 to protest a Georgia bill that would allow discrimination of LGBTQ individuals.
