The UFCW was the first ever labor union to be a cosponsor of the event. Many of the speakers recognized and thanked the UFCW for its support.
International Vice President Steve Powell gave a great speech about the need for the labor and LGBT movements to work together.
“Our movements are fighting for the same things: equality, fairness, respect, and dignity,” he said.
He spoke of former Vice President Bill Olwell and the impact he was able to make by being out and proud.
It was a proud day for OUTreach and the entire UFCW.
