Lavender Caucus

LavenderCaucusBannerPlease join us for the monthly membership meetings of the Lavender Caucus at 6 pm on the fourth Wednesday of month

The Lavender Caucus is the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Caucus group of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The purpose of the Lavender Caucus is to facilitate open and respectful communication between the LGBTQ community and the labor movement by:

  • Increasing visibility of LGBTQ rank-and-file activists, officers and staff members in their unions and workplaces, and in work actions
  • Creating a visible SEIU presence within the LGBTQ community
  • Educating SEIU members, staff and leadership about LGBTQ issues
  • Educating the LGBTQ community about labor issues and supporting workers’ rights within that community
  • Networking with other labor and community groups to  build a strong, visible coalition of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning activists
  • Supporting the AFL/CIO constituency group Pride at Work (PAW), acting as a liaison between SEIU and PAW and working with other national LGBTQ organizations
  • Organizing against all discrimination, especially discrimination based on sex or gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or perceived orientation and/or marital status
  • Promoting and facilitating LGBTQ active participation and leadership through union democracy and rank-and-file development
