For Immediate Release
Washington, D.C. – Pride at Work, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) constituency group of organized labor, has selected Jerame Davis as the Executive Director for the organization going forward. Davis will continue his responsibilities at Pride at Work’s headquarters in Washington, DC after a successful period as the organization’s interim Executive Director.
“Jerame impressed us immensely during his time as interim director,” said Lori Pelletier, Pride at Work Co-President. “We were thrilled when he agreed to stay on as our permanent ED.”
Originally from southern Indiana, Davis became acquainted with Pride at Work in Bloomington, IN after the local chapter got involved in a wrongful termination case he and his partner were battling. He has served as vice president of the Indiana Pride at Work chapter, on the boards of Indiana Equality and the Indiana Stonewall Democrats, and founded Indiana’s first LGBT direct action group. In 2010 he joined the staff at National Stonewall Democrats in Washington, DC and in 2011 became their Executive Director. Davis led the organization through the 2012 election cycle. He then joined the legislative team at Communications Workers of America before stepping into his role at Pride at Work.
Shane Larson, Pride at Work Co-President, said, “Jerame has exceeded our expectations as interim ED. We are confident the organization is in good hands and is on the right track for the future.”
