June is Pride Month! – “ Let Your True Colors Fly”
May 31, 2019
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 primary objective uniting 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 belong to every human being. We stand up for fairness and equal opportunity for all American workers. Flight Attendants are encouraged to “ Let Your True Colors Fly” during the month of June by supporting a Pride event in your area or by displaying our AFA Pride Pin. Contact your Local Council office to obtain a Pride Pin.
