Worq It Out: An LGBTQ Worker Support Group

July 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

LGBTQ Allyship will be hosting Worq It Out, a monthly LGBTQ Worker support  group to help build community and connect LGBTQ workers to resources if they face discrimination and hardship at work.

It can often be isolating to be one of few, or the only, LGBTQ identified folx at the workplace. Worq It Out is meant to help workers share their experiences, discuss changes they would like to see, and get more information for assistance that exists for them.

Meetings will occur on the fourth Tuesday of every month. We will meet at the Washington State Labor Council Hall located at 321 16th Ave S, Seattle 98144.

For more information, please contact our Community Facilitator, Laurie Rocello Torres at laurie@allyship.org
