Join Us at the Northampton Pride March, May 4th
The Western Massachusetts chapter of Pride at Work, a national organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender folks who are part of the labor movement, is organizing a contingent for the 32nd Annual Northampton Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride celebration on Saturday May 4th in downtown Northampton. The theme this year is “Our Journey is Not Complete.”
Pride at Work – Western Mass. invites all union members and allies to join us as we march to demonstrate mutual support of the LGBT community and the Labor Movement for social and economic justice. Last year, we had the largest labor contingent ever with representatives from Mass. Nurses Association, Jobs with Justice, the Occupy movement, IBEW, CWA, and UFCW. This year, we hope to expand to even more representatives from progressive labor. If you would like to help make posters and plan our contingent, please join us at the UAW Local 2322 office, 4 Open Square Way, Suite 406 in Holyoke on Monday, April 29 from 3:00-6:00 PM.
On Saturday,May 4th, we will gather between the Northampton Brewery and the parking garage at 11:30am. Look for the UAW local 2322 and Pride at Work banners.
