Human Rights Campaign

The Human Rights Campaign works to mobilize voters nationwide, educate the public about LGBTQ+ issues, and advance pro-equality policy and litigation. Founded in 1980, the HRC doesn’t separate the values it holds from the way they approach their work, and they’re now 3 million members strong.


The Legal Defense Fund defends and advances the full dignity and citizenship of Black people in America using the power of law, narrative, research, and people. The Legal Defense Fund (LDF) is the country’s first and foremost civil and human rights law firm, founded in 1940 under the leadership of Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American U.S. Supreme Court Justice.


RAINN  is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization, carrying out programs to prevent sexual violence, help survivors, and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice. RAINN has helped more than 4.3 million survivors since 1994.

Urban Justice Center | Sex Workers Project

The Urban Justice Center has a two pronged approach to meet the ongoing advocacy needs of their clients: Anchor Projects, which are longstanding and led by experts in the field; and the Social Justice Accelerator, which incubates groundbreaking new projects. Bee’s Knees supports an Anchor Project called the Sex Workers Project, which defends the human rights of sex workers by destigmatizing and decriminalizing people in the sex trades through free legal services, education, research, and policy advocacy. 

Strippers United

Strippers United is an authoritative voice in the stripper’s rights movement. They strive to advocate for the diverse community of people who call themselves strippers, and their ultimate vision is to dismantle whorephobia and decriminalize sex work.


Veterinarians Leonid and Valentina Stoyanov founded the Vet Crew Foundation and the Vet Crew Veterinary Hospital with the primary goal of rescue and preservation of animal lives. When war broke out in Ukraine, many animals were abandoned in the war zone, with no chance of survival. The Vet Crew team decided to stay in Ukraine and help all the animals, wild and domestic, affected by the war.
