Pride at Work
Pride At Work is a nonprofit organization that represents LGBTQ union members and their allies. They are an officially recognized constituency group of the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor & Congress of Industrial Organizations) that organizes mutual support between the organized Labor Movement and the LGBTQ Community to further social and economic justice. From their national office in Washington, DC, they coordinate and support more than 20 Chapters across the country.
They seek full equality for LGBTQ Workers in their workplaces and unions. They work towards creating a Labor Movement that cherishes diversity, encourages openness, and ensures safety & dignity. They aim to educate the LGBTQ Community about the benefits of a union contract for LGBTQ working people, and to build support and solidarity for the union movement in the LGBTQ community.
They organize in the spirit of the union movement’s historic motto, “An Injury to One is An Injury to All.” They oppose all forms of discrimination on the job and in their unions based on sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, race, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, religion or political views.See more
