A Pathway for Success: the Labor and LGBT Movements

a new workshop exploring the intersection of the Labor Movement and GLBTQ Social Movements
Winning Equality in the state of Oregon is going to take everyone!

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people have been leaders in many great movements-- including the labor movement. The Labor Movement has been at the front lines of working to secure rights for LGBT workers, ensure dignity and respect in the workplace and is now on the horizon, standing strong for equality.

Join us to explore the critical role that labor unions have played in achieving equality in the work place and beyond.

When: Tuesday, July 13th from 5:30pm to 8:00pm
Where: Musicians Union Local 99 in the auditorium. The Musicians Union Local 99 is off of 20th and Sandy at 325 NE 20th Ave.
