Join AFL-CIO Pride at Work Oregon and a host of labor unions as we invite partner organizations to discuss how we can work together to raise the voices of under-represented communities in order to strengthen our unions and our movement, and create workplaces that are truly inclusive of everyone.

Groups like Basic Rights Oregon, PFLAG Black Chapter, CAUSA, and Oregon Tradeswomen, Inc., among others, will talk about the issues that are important to them.  The discussion will include concrete action that individuals and organizations can take to build bridges and strengthen alliances.  We will focus on topics such as the experiences of women in the construction trades, bargaining for transgender inclusive health care, and the experiences of immigrant workers.

We are so excited to have the flyer for our October 28 event “Share Struggles = Shared Victories: Organizing Across Movements”! This event will be Tuesday October 28 at 6pm at the SEIU 503 Hall (6401 SE Foster).

Please share our flyer via email (attached) and/or share the flyer from our facebook page www.facebook.com/prideatworkoregon. Please also print the flyer and hang it up in your workplace and/or union hall!
