June is Pride Month!

Date: June 1, 2018
Type: AFA Article

June is Pride Month! AFA-CWA supports all LGBTQ Flight Attendants and workers as we fight for protections on the job and in our communities. AFA’s commitment to equal treatment of all individuals, regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression is resolute. 

In 1976, we changed our by-laws to include within our first objective to unite all flight cabin crew members in the airline industry, "regardless of sexual orientation." Discrimination of any kind undermines the strength of our country. We must work together to protect the rights that should belong to every human being. We stand up for fairness and equal opportunity for all American workers.

AFA is a longtime supporter of Pride @ Work, the AFL-CIO diversity organization working towards full equality for LGBTQ people in the workplace. The Pride @ Work 2018 Convention is August 23-25, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. Let us know if you want to get involved with Pride @ Work to help build power for LGBTQ working people >
