March 31 is Transgender Day of Visibility — a day dedicated to celebrate and recognize of the resilience and accomplishments of the transgender community. On this day, we don’t only celebrate the contributions that the transgender community have paid to society, but also raise awareness about the struggles that they face on a daily basis.
As a hard-working union family, it’s important now more than ever that everyone is treated equally and justly, both on the job and in their communities.
There is still a lot of work to be done before transgender people have full equality under the law. In many states, there is nothing to prevent a worker from being discriminated against or fired simply because of their gender identity or expression.
UFCW is proud to join today’s celebrations and will continue to support the transgender community.
Trans rights are human rights!
