UFCW’s LGBT constituency group OUTreach held their executive board meeting on November 12-13 last week. During the meetings, executive board members heard from numerous leaders in the LGBT community. Speakers included Mara Keisling, Executive Director for the National Center for Transgender Equality, Jerame Davis, Executive Director for the AFL-CIO’s Pride at Work, Daniel Pino from the National Gay & Lesbian Taskforce, and Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema.
Following the numerous presentations, OUTreach’s executive board mapped out goals and actions for 2015. Some of them include attending the Creating Change conference, focusing on the relationships between the labor and LGBT communities, fighting for LGBT workers’ rights in the workplace, and learning more about transgender issues.
