MAP’s new report, A Broken Bargain for LGBT Workers of Color, offers a groundbreaking analysis of the issues faced by LGBT workers of color in the United States. The report examines how LGBT workers of color face unique challenges related to their race and ethnicity and their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. In particular, LGBT workers of color are hindered by three major barriers: educational barriers; hiring bias and on-the-job discrimination; and unequal pay, benefits, and taxation. As a result, LGBT people of color are some of the most disadvantaged workers in the United States-and face extraordinarily high rates of unemployment and poverty.

Today, I had an email from The American Foundation for Equal Rights in my in box. Ya know, it’s one of those kind of emails you can subscribe to. I kinda like this one, because it’s a helpful guide pertaining to the upcoming decision on Prop 8 from the Supreme Court.
From their website: “The Equality Project is a youth lead organization who’s main goal is to advocate for anti-bullying within the education system. We work as a team to communicate with all parts of the community that this is a problem that needs to be addressed and addressed quickly.”
