June is Pride Month! AFA-CWA supports all LGBTQ+ Flight Attendants and workers as we fight for protections on the job and in our communities. AFA’s mission is to unite all Flight Attendants and promote equality and employment for all, regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. This has been codified in our Constitution since 1976.
Discrimination of any kind undermines the strength of our country. We must work together to protect the rights that should belong to every human being. We stand up for fairness and equal opportunity for all American workers.
AFA is a longtime supporter of Pride At Work, the AFL-CIO diversity organization working towards full equality for LGBTQ+ people in the workplace.
In February, the U.S. House of Representatives passed The Equality Act! The Equality Act is landmark legislation to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in employment, housing, public spaces, federally funded programs, and more. Discrimination is still the reality for far too many in the LGBTQ community and the House has, again, taken this important step toward equality for LGBTQ people.
