Pride at Work (Rochester-Finger Lakes Chapter)

The purpose of Pride At Work is to mobilize mutual support between the organized Labor Movement and the LGBT Community around organizing for social and economic justice.

We see full equality for LGBT Workers in their workplaces and unions.

We work towards creating a Labor Movement that cherishes diversity, encourages openness, and ensures safety & dignity.

We aim to educate the LBGT Community about the benefits of union membership for LGBT working people, and to build support and solidarity for the union movement in the LGBT community.

We intend to do this in the spirit of the union movement’s historic motto, “An Injury to One is An Injury to All.” We oppose all forms of discrimination on the job and in our unions based on sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, religion o political views.

Pride at Work (PAW) Rochester-Finger Lakes Chapter is the increasingly visible voice of GLBT organized labor in the Genesee Valley region and has initiated significant outreach to the local labor community, with positive results.

Meetings are the first Thursday of the month at 5:30 pm. Call for location, information on becoming a member or a schedule of upcoming activities.
