The Jan. 15 to 19, 2020 conference is organized by the National LGBTQ Task Force and is the foremost political, leadership and skills-building conference for the LGBTQ+ social justice movement.
Scholarship recipients will learn more about a broad range of social justice issues and develop skills to bring back to their workplaces and local unions. Past session topics have included labor, gender equality, community organizing, criminal justice, immigration and more.
In recent years, UFCW OUTreach Executive Board members have served as a key voice for working class and labor issues at this conference. In a time where the labor movement and everything we have fought for is under attack, UFCW OUTreach is dedicated to strengthening social and economic justice. With collaborations like these, our union family is able to advance full equality for LGBTQ+ workers at work and in their local unions. This effort reflects the UFCW’s commitment to building a resilient working class, united in strengthening economic opportunities for all workers.
The submission deadline for the scholarships is Friday, Nov.15. For more information about these scholarships or to apply, visit the new UFCW OUTreach website here.
