we are outreach
WHAT WE STAND FOR
UFCW OUTreach is a constituency group dedicated to building mutual support between our union’s International, regions, and locals and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBTQ+) community and their allies in order to come together to organize for social and economic justice for all, regardless of age, race, gender, creed, color, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Together, we will ensure full equality for LGBTQ+ workers on their jobs and in their unions.
Together, we will build a labor environment that cherishes diversity, encourages openness, and ensures safety and dignity, as we move forward in the spirit of “an injury to one is an injury to all,” opposing all forms of discrimination—not just against members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Together, we will educate all UFCW leaders, staff, and members about the LGBTQ+ community, and build support and solidarity for the UFCW in that community and all communities that share our union’s common goals and interests.
Together we will fight to achieve equality for all members of the LGBTQ+ community in employment, marriage, immigration, and wherever else inequities exist.
Together, we will work closely with Pride at Work and other organizations to achieve mutual goals and make our shared vision for equality for LGBTQ+ workers a reality.
Equality, education, understanding, and solidarity are our mission.
