Why start an LGBTQ focused Worker’s Center?
In addition to the everyday difficulties workers face in the United States LGBTQ people also face systematic discrimination in the workplace based on who they love and their gender expression. This discrimination has effected the pockets of LGBTQ people and their families. We have to organize now for a better future tomorrow.
Why the emphasis on Trans, Black, and People of Color Workers?
