Pride at Work, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) constituency group of organized labor, has selected Jerame Davis as the Executive Director for the organization going forward. Davis will continue his responsibilities at Pride at Work's headquarters in Washington, DC after a successful period as the organization's interim Executive Director (Jerame Davis Appointed Pride at Work Interim Executive Director 6/19 2014 UC).
“I can't think of a better place to be at this point in our movement's history,” said Davis. “With marriage equality sweeping across the nation, our movement is refocusing on bread-and-butter issues like workplace discrimination, income inequality, and access to health care. These are some of Pride at Work's core issues.” Click here to read his recent op-ed in the Advocate outlining the history of the labor movement’s support for LGBT rights dating back the 1930s, and calling the modern gay rights movement to stand in solidarity with its brothers and sisters in labor.
