This weekend, Atlanta celebrates its 46th Annual Pride Festival and United Way celebrates its commitment to building a stronger, more inclusive Greater Atlanta — one where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

 

Pride@Work: Seeking Full Equality for LGBTQ Workers

A community that thrives is one where everyone is included. Through our partnership with the AFL-CIO, we’ve helped to establish an Atlanta chapter of Pride@Work — a constituency group seeking full equality for LGBTQ workers. Last month, the group had its first committee meeting, voting for bylaws and electing President Tracy Duncan and Vice-President Kelly Temple (United Way of Greater Atlanta’s very own AFL-CIO Community Services Liaison)!

 

So why join ATL Pride@Work? Connect to what’s happening in our community while advocating for LGBTQ rights in the workplace. LGBTQ workers and allies are welcome to join, and you don’t have to be a union member to participate! By organizing mutual support through the Labor Movement, LGBTQ workers, allies and non-union members, Pride@Work aims to further social and economic justice in Greater Atlanta.

This Sunday, watch for Pride@Work in the Atlanta Pride Parade or head to the Facebook page to follow along on social media. Want to learn more about membership? Mark your calendar for ATL Pride@Work’s first general membership meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 20th at the CWL Local 3204 Union Hall (279 Logan Street SE, Atlanta).
