NUHW-CNA is proud to celebrate this week’s huge step forward for equality for all Americans. NUHW staff and member leaders have been active in the campaign to achieve marriage equality for years, going all the way back to 2000, when Local 250 housed the campaign to defeat the anti-gay “Knight Initiative,” Prop 22, out of our union hall.

This is a huge win for the LGBT equality movement,” says NUHW President Sal Rosselli, who was selected as a Community Grand Marshal in the 2006 San Francisco Pride Parade. “But organizing must continue to achieve equal rights for all in 37 other states.”
