Pride at Work Statement on Today’s Attack in Orlando

Washington, DC – The following may be attributed to Jerame Davis, Executive Director of Pride at Work on behalf of the entire National Executive Board and our membership throughout organized labor:

“Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victims and their families. Hatred and violence have no place in a civilized society. Our hearts break for the families of the Orlando massacre as we wait for more information about this horrific attack. Until then, we can only honor the victims and their families by working to make sure this never happens again.“


Pride At Work organizes mutual support between the organized Labor Movement and the LGBTQ Community for social and economic justice. We seek full equality for LGBTQ Workers in our workplaces and unions and we organize in the spirit of the union movement’s historic motto, “An Injury to One is An Injury to All.” Learn more at
