We are excited to announce that the University of Maryland is now the repository for the records of Pride at Work!
Pride at Work (P@W) is an AFL-CIO constituency group that represents and advocates for LGBT union members across the United States. Since 1994, P@W has sought “full equality for LGBT Workers in our workplaces and unions” while “creating a Labor Movement that cherishes diversity, encourages openness, and ensures safety & dignity.”
This July, UMD archives staff accessioned records from P@W’s Washington, D.C. office. The collection documents the work and activities of P@W advocating for worker rights, P@W’s Labor Leadership Initiative’s training and educational component, as well as the evolution of the organization’s history.
In the upcoming months, UMD’s archivists will inventory and organize the records so that researchers can have easier access to them.
Stay tuned for more news as we prepare this exciting new collection to be opened to the public!
