Happy Pride Month from UFCW Local 328! Pride Month commemorates the Stonewall Uprising of June 1969 in New York City. At the time, police raids on bars catering to LGBTQ+ patrons were common. However, that night, the patrons of the Stonewall Inn fought back, marking the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against the LGBTQ+ community. We want to give a shout-out to UFCW OUTreach for their amazing efforts to provide resources to help celebrate diverse and inclusive workplaces as well as to elevate the voices of LGBTQ+ members.
We stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ family as we recognize the impact that these members have had on the labor movement and the fight for equality and respect.
