Statement from HRDC Director Rosa and LGBTQ+ Caucus President Chris Fuentes on International Transgender Day of Visibility


“This International Transgender Day of Visibility, we are proud to stand in solidarity with transgender Teamsters who make our union strong.

“The Teamsters are committed to ensuring that trans workers are treated with the same dignity and respect that every worker deserves.

“In the words of our General President Sean O’Brien: You are not alone. You’re part of a team. We are all members of the Teamster family and we come in all colors, religions, ages, genders, and sexual orientations. None of us should be cast aside or made to feel ‘lesser’ than the other.

“Today, let’s lift each other up and remember that every American has the right to be themselves and live free of discrimination.”
