Jerame Davis

Executive Director

Jerame Davis (he/him) is a long-time LGBTQ and labor rights activist and has served as the executive director of Pride at Work, the nation’s only organization that focuses on LGBTQ working people in unions, since 2014. His first campaign was in 1999 when he led a coalition of labor unions and social justice organizations – including Pride at Work – to develop a successful campaign against an employer who fired him and two other workers because they are gay. In 2014, Davis began working for the Communications Workers of America, which led him back to the organization where he got his start in activism, Pride at Work. Davis and his husband, Bil, had their personal papers and mementos from their careers in activism archived by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.
