The Lavender Caucus is the Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/ Transgender (L/G/B/T) Caucus of the Service Employees International Union whose purpose is to facilitate open and respectful communication between the L/G/B/T community and the labor movement by:
  • increasing the visibility of L/B/G/T rank-and-file activists, officers and staff members in their unions and workplaces, and in work actions;
  • creating a visible SEIU presence within the L/G/B/T community;
  • educating SEIU members, staff and leadership about L/G/B/T issues;
  • educating the L/G/B/T 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 and  transgender activists;
  • supporting the AFL/CIO constituency group Pride at Work (PAW), acting as a liaison between SEIU and PAW and working with other national L/G/B/T organizations;
  • organizing against all discrimination, specifically including discrimination based on sex or gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or perceived orientation and/or marital status; and
  • promoting and facilitating L/G/B/T active participation and leadership through union democracy and rank-and-file development.
