2018 DOJ Pride Board Statement

As our members in cities across the nation prepare for Pride festivities, DOJ Pride wants to uplift the beauty and diversity of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community.  As the Department of Justice’s LGBTQ employee resource organization, we reaffirm our commitment that all individuals, regardless of whom they love or their gender identity or expression, be able to safely live authentic lives.  We believe this can only truly happen when individuals are able to live their lives free from discrimination and are seen and valued for who they are in all aspects of their lives, such as when applying for a job or going to work, when attending school, when visiting a healthcare provider, when serving our nation in the armed services, and when interacting with the criminal justice system.  To this end, we will continue to advance our mission of fostering community among LGBTQ employees and our allies and advocating for the elimination of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.
