UFCW’s LGBT constituency group OUTreach held its executive board meeting over the last two days. During the meetings, executive board members heard from numerous leaders in the LGBT community. Speakers included Mara Keisling, Executive Director for the National Center for Transgender Equality, Jerame Davis, Executive Director of Pride at Work, Daniel Pino from the National Gay & Lesbian Taskforce, and Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema.
