All of Us: Out + Essential
In this moment, when a global pandemic and the subsequent economic fallout are disproportionately impacting LGBTQ people and people of color, we are reminded that the labor movement, the LGBTQ equality movement and the civil rights movement have an intertwined and shared history. As protesters demand accountability from police and proclaim that Black lives matter, it helps to remember that all three movements have seen violence at the hands of police in order to win our rights. And just this month, the Supreme Court ruled that the prohibition on sex discrimination in the workplace that was included in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to LGBTQ people as well.
With all of this in mind, we will engage in a discussion with leaders and workers at the intersection of these movements about how we can continue to lift up the lives of marginalized communities.
