Following a reported bomb threat, the Human Rights Campaign and other LGBT organizations in Washington evacuated their offices today. According to Fred Sainz, HRC's vice president for communications, the Los Angeles Police Department received an unspecified bomb threat against a ''national gay rights organization,'' which led the LAPD to notify the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department of the threat, which subsequently notified HRC and others.

An HRC email to staff quickly circulated among other groups, such as the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the National Black Justice Coalition and the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network.
