Pride Month Profiles: Desi Navarro

For Pride Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various LGBTQ+ workers who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Desi Navarro of the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

Desi Navarro is a senior clerk with the City of Tucson and a vice president of CWA Local 7000. In addition to being on the national CWA Women's Committee, she is a member of the CWA Pride Caucus and Arizona Pride At Work. Navarro has been an activist her entire life and will continue to fight for equity, workers' rights and the LGBTQ+ community. Navarro and her wife, Amanda, have a 4-year-old daughter named Poppy. When she's not pursuing justice, she enjoys spending time with her family and exploring the Arizona desert.
