MEDIA ADVISORY

WEDNESDAY: REP. MARK TAKANO AND LGBTQ EQUALITY GROUPS HOLD PRESS CONFERENCE ON LGBTQ CONCERNS ABOUT TRUMP’S NOMINEE FOR LABOR SECRETARY, ANDREW PUZDER

DETAILS: Pride at Work and Equality Federation will be joined by Rep. Mark Takano for a press conference on Capitol Hill to discuss the LGBTQ ramifications of Andrew Puzder being confirmed as Trump’s Secretary of Labor. LGBTQ working people rely on the Labor Department for workplace protections, LGBTQ workplace data, and more. A labor secretary who is hostile to LGBTQ equality – or indifferent, as the case may be – could inflict great harm on LGBTQ working people, especially in light of reports of a possible executive order that would allow LGBTQ discrimination across the federal government.

WHO: Jerame Davis, Pride at Work; Andy Garcia, Equality Federation; Representative Mark Takano

WHAT: Press conference to discuss concerns with Trump Labor Secretary designee, Andrew Puzder

WHERE: 421 Cannon House Office Building, Washington, DC

WHEN: 10:00 AM Wednesday, February 15, 2017

CONTACT: Jerame Davis, jdavis@prideatwork.org – 202-637-5014

Cathy Renna, cathy@targetcue.com or 917-757-6123
