“The healthcare workers of 1199SEIU denounce the recent passage of legislation in Mississippi and North Carolina which openly endorses discrimination against LGBTQ people. We believe that such laws have no place in our society. From our inception, 1199SEIU has championed justice and equality for everyone. We stand with the LGBTQ community in rejecting this injustice. We urge the nation’s working people to fight this intolerance and bigotry, and prove that hate will not win.” –The LGBTQ/Lavender Caucus of 1199SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, the largest healthcare union in the nation.
