So, what does the committee do?
The OPEIU Local 2 LGBTQIA+ Committee is responsible for:
Over the years this has shown up as trainings at the Local, content creation for the Local’s communications channels, participating and fundraising for Whitman Walker Health’s Walk to End HIV, attending Pride at Work’s triennial convention & sharing training materials with the Local, hosting a virtual trivia night during LGBTQ History Month, and sharing updates & announcements at quarterly membership meetings.
And there is certainly room to grow!
Would you like to join the committee or know someone who would?
Committee members can expect to spend 1 - 3 hours a month supporting the committee responsibilities listed above and dreaming up new ways to engage Local 2 members on the issues brought up in last year’s survey.
If this sounds like you OR you can think of a colleague or two who’d be interested in getting more involved with the Local and joining this committee, please contact OPEIU Local 2 LGBTQIA+ Committee Chair Chelsea Bland at firstname.lastname@example.org!
